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 be changed by what you experience in person, through live tours, or from our 360° virtual tours and image galleries. Please note that animals are not allowed in the buildings.
