THE NAUVOO ILLINOIS TEMPLE


For an archive of daily images of the Nauvoo Illinois Temple's construction see Deseret Book's WebCam, which went online on January 21, 2000. Another good source of images is Fred Cote's Nauvoo Internet News' Nauvoo Temple Reconstruction Photo Index. Justin Barrett of JB|AV also has a timelapse animation of the Temple's construction.
