Nauvoo Exodus | 175th Anniversary

Each year on the first Saturday in February, Nauvoo Historic Sites hosts an event marking the first day of the Saints’ winter exodus from Nauvoo in 1846. The popular event, with a breakfast and parade and speeches at the edge of the Mississippi River, will not be held this year due to the pandemic. Instead, we have prepared a special video tribute to the pioneers and this beautiful town they left behind. Help us honor the 175th anniversary by watching it, sharing it on social media, and telling your ancestors’ story.
