Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Nauvoo - Hart House

This 1927 home features 3000 square feet with a beautiful view of the Temple!

Location, location, location! You can't stay closer to the Nauvoo Temple than at the Hart House, across the street from the temple! This location has an unobstructed view of the temple, in addition to a panoramic view of the Mississippi River.

The Hart House is a finely constructed home with beautiful oak woodwork, hardwood floors, French doors with original glass, and had been well maintained by Dorothy Hart. Nauvoo Management Group, LLC spent the winter of 2004-2005 redecorating and remodeling the home and adding central air conditioning for the comfort and enjoyment of guests.

The home has a large front porch for visiting and enjoying the view of the temple and Mississippi River.

Entering the front door, the large living room has a sofa and love seat, a fireplace and entertainment center. Through double French doors the large dining room seats 8 for dinner and has beautiful oak window seats in the bay window featuring a view of the Mississippi River. Through another set of double French doors you are in the library with over a hundred books about church history and Nauvoo.

The kitchen has retained its original pine cabinetry, but added modern appliances for convenience. It has most of the utensils and kitchen supplies a family would need while staying in Nauvoo. Off the kitchen is a sun porch with a table for four, offering a view of the garden in the back. Also located on the main floor is a half bath for the convenience of guests.

There is a beautiful oak stairway from the living room, and a 'servant's' stairway from the kitchen to the upstairs bedrooms. The two large bedrooms at the back of the home feature queen size beds and walk-in closets. The large master bedroom with a beautiful view of the temple, features a king size bed, walk-in closet, attached half bath, and a TV/VCR. The upstairs hall bathroom has a vanity, toilet and shower.

The basement has been completely remodeled with a family room featuring a queen size sofa sleeper, rocker-recliner, entertainment center with 31' TV, VCR, DVD, CD and Surround Sound. There are video cassettes and DVDs about Nauvoo and Carthage available to view. High speed internet is also available in the home. The full bathroom includes a Jacuzzi whirlpool tub and separate shower. Also available for guest's use is a washer and dryer. The Tom Sawyer-Huck Finn bedroom is off the family room and has twin bunk beds.

Nauvoo is an historic town established by the Mormons in 1839. It grew to be the largest town in Illinois, along with Chicago, with a population of 15,000 - 20,000 people. After the martyrdom of the founder of Mormonism, Joseph Smith, in 1844, Brigham Young led the Saints from Nauvoo to the Great Salt Lake over the Mormon Trail.

Only about 1100 people remained in Nauvoo after the exodus of the Latter-day Saints. In the 1960's a descendant of one of the Nauvoo pioneers purchased his ancestor's home and began restoration. Nauvoo Restoration Inc. was established and since then over thirty historic homes and businesses have been restored or reconstructed, and are available for free tours.

The Nauvoo Pageant is held every summer with thousands of visitors to the city to watch the performance of song and dance relating the Mormon history in Nauvoo.

In addition, the Nauvoo Temple was restored in 2002, and is modeled after the original temple which was destroyed by arson in the late 1840's, and later by tornado in the 1850's.

Visitors to Nauvoo enjoy the free tours and entertainment, where there is fun and education for the entire family! It is an extra treat to 'make your home away from home in Nauvoo!
