Nauvoo, IL



We took some time out of the trip and stopped and saw Nauvoo. This was the best part of the whole trip. For the people that don't know, Nauvoo is one of the spots that Joseph Smith and the Mormons settled. We had the opportunity to learn all about the history an experience what it would be like to live in that time. The bakery (1st picture) taught us all about the cooking and baking that the women of that time period did and they even gave us homemade gingerbread cookies that would of been baked in a bustle oven. Along with the bakery we got to learn about making shoes, bricks, guns, the metal shop (picture 2).  We were able to tour the culture hall and see many quilts that were made in that time period (picture 3 and 4).
