  • Nauvoo Historic District is filled with historical buildings of thecurrent1830-1846 either restored to historically correct specifications or rebuilt as a historically correct replica. The site is open year round and has sites owned by the Community of Christ Church and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Wonderful day trip. Many things to see and do, all for free.
