Nauvoo Historic Sites
Nauvoo Historic Sites tells the story of early members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who settled here between 1839-1846 and built a thriving and dynamic city on a bend of the Mississippi River. Nauvoo provided the Latter-day Saints with rest for several years until religious persecution again forced their departure in 1846. We invite you to come and learn more through in-person tours, virtual tours, and our 360° walkthroughs and image galleries. Please note that animals are not allowed in the buildings.
