Our day starts with a free continental breakfast at the Family Living Center (located on White Street, between Main & Granger).  There will be a brief program honoring the pioneers who left Nauvoo in 1846.  Everyone is welcome to join and walk with the Nauvoo Legion marching in the Exodus.  We would like to encourage participants to wear a badge in honor of those who left in 1846.  You are welcome to research a name of a pioneer and get a badge at the Land & Records Office.

Please refer to the information below.

Leaders . . .  This event is a perfect opportunity for everyone, including YSA groups or Young Men/Young Women groups to understand the heritage of Historic Nauvoo and,

in a small way, experience first hand what the pioneers experienced for their testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


The web page will be updated as more information is released.


We hope you can join us.  Please remember to dress appropriately for weather conditions.  

Land & Records


We invite you to participate in the Historic Nauvoo Exodus Commemoration on Saturday, February 1, 2020.  Participants walk for the name(s) of an ancestor or individual who lived in Nauvoo before or during the Exodus.  To make the experience more personal we invite you to visit the Nauvoo Land & Records Office to assist you in identifying and learning about the individual for whom you will walk. 


The Nauvoo Land and Records computer data base will be available for each of you to research your ancestor.  If you are interested in bringing a group we encourage you to make an appointment.  If possible, we will accommodate a later time for your group.  You may contact us for an appointment:
