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 the first weekend in February!
The Untold Nauvoo Stories Symposium for 2013 was held on February 1st and 2nd. We would like to thank all those who presented and those who attended the symposium. The 2014 symposium will be held on February 7th and 8th, 2014.
The information displayed on the Presentations, Schedule and Presenters pages are from the 2013 symposium. Those pages will be updated as soon as the 2014 program is developed.
