After touring the Hyde, Weeks, Hunter, and Gheen homes, as well as the Jones Pavilion, Elder Quentin L. Cook met with several invited leaders and guests to dedicate the sites that are now open for tours. Sister Cook joined her husband and spoke to the audience about her ancestral ties to the Hunter home. Both affirmed their love for Nauvoo.

President and Sister Rizley, site leaders for Historic Nauvoo provided opening and closing prayers at the dedication.
