The structure seen here was, for the most part, built following the removal of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints who followed Brigham Young to the West.
The 124th section of the Doctrine and Covenants mandates the construction of the Nauvoo House. It was to be a place of residence and of rest for weary travelers. As a boarding house, it was never completed.
