Family Living Center
Location: Behind Cultural Hall
The Family Living Center provides demonstrations about domestic life for visiting school children and families. Many tasks in a frontier community involved all members of the family. Children could be assigned to churn butter, gather stones for candle making, card wool, and more. Apprentices could begin to learn a trade as young as age twelve.
Visitors here can also consider how to load a wagon for the trek west.
Come visit the center anytime the historic sites are open to see demonstrations and learn more about life in Nauvoo. Also, download our Wheat Bread Recipe.
