In the mid 1950s, Nauvoo Restoration Inc., formed by Dr. Leroy Kimball and others, began acquisition of land and buildings which had belonged to the Latter-day Saints in the 1840s. An ongoing plan of restoration has been continued by the Church ever since.
Nauvoo in Hebrew means "beautiful City". Many of the old homes and shops have been restored and are open free of charge to the public for tours. New LDS & RLDS Visitor' Centers have been constructed where visitors can learn about Nauvoo in its formative years. One can spend up to three days touring sites between the Nauvoo and the Old Carthage Jail. At the brick yard each family may obtain a souvenir brick for a small cost, a cookie at the bakery, and forged items at the blacksmith shop. Free horse drawn wagon rides are given through the north farm area of the City.
Nauvoo with its current population around 1200 has five restaurants, an RV park, a hotel and two motels, two convenience stores, gift shops, antiques and many other businesses.

The city is growing but is still a delightful small community to over 1.07 million visitors who visited the area in 2003.

tourist information. This site will be updated two to four times a
