William & Caroline Weeks Home
Location: 965 Young Street
William and Caroline Weeks married in 1839 in Quincy, Illinois, and they moved to Nauvoo in 1841. William’s father and brothers were also builders, and he learned his craft working in the family business. He left it to join the Church. In Nauvoo, Joseph Smith asked for design ideas for the newly announced temple. When William submitted his plans, Joseph exclaimed “You are the man I want!” They would work together for nearly two years until the design aligned with Joseph’s vision of the temple. William also supervised the temple’s construction until the Saints were forced to leave Nauvoo.
