The City of Nauvoo, Nauvoo Tourism Office, Joseph Smith Historic Site and Historic Nauvoo 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’ history, 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. The 9th Annual Untold Nauvoo Stories symposium will be held February 1-2, 2019 at various locations throughout Nauvoo.
There is a $35 registration fee which includes the Friday evening banquet. If you are not able to attend the dinner on Friday, the sessions-only registration fee is $20.
If you only want to attend the dinner on Friday, the cost is $25. The deadline for reserving a place at the Friday evening banquet is January 28, 2019 You may pay at the registration table at the Symposium or mail your payment to: Nauvoo Tourism Office, P.O. Box 85, Nauvoo, IL 62354. Please make checks payable to Nauvoo Area Chamber of Commerce.
