Riser Boot & Shoe
LOCATION: Main & Parley Streets
George and Christiana Riser arrived in Nauvoo in 1842 to learn more about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and were soon baptized in the Mississippi River. They built this home in 1843. George had been a successful cordwainer (shoemaker) in Ohio, and so he continued in that trade from the main floor shop. His was one of 14 businesses selling shoes and boots that formed a union called the Boot and Shoe Makers Association.
