Untold Nauvoo Stories Symposium
Welcome to Untold Nauvoo Stories. The City of Nauvoo, Nauvoo Tourism Office, Joseph Smith Historic Site and the Historic Nauvoo Visitors’ Center sponsor an annual gathering to celebrate the full gamut of Nauvoo’s legacy—its Native American peoples, its origins as a river town, its role in the Latter-day Saints saga, its place in the utopian Icarian movement, its appeal to German immigrants, its contribution to the Sisters of St. Benedict ministry, its significance in Midwest viticulture, its reflection of trends in American agriculture, and its rebirth as a point of heritage tourism. This gathering is a venue for sharing stories that have not yet entered into the standard narrative of the histories of Hancock and Lee counties. We hope you can join us next February!
The Untold Nauvoo Stories Symposium for 2016 will be held on February 5th and 6th, 2016. If you are interested in presenting at the symposium please click here for more information.
