Historic Sites

The brickmaker will demonstrate how bricks were formed, dried and baked here in Old Nauvoo.

Many early settlers lived for years in log cabins while they built their brick homes, only to enjoy them for a few short months before they left to begin their trek westward. You may take home a souvenir Nauvoo brick to help remember your visit.
