Hotel Nauvoo, Nauvoo, Illinois

We were excited to visit my brother Dan and his wife, Linda, in Burlington Iowa this week.  We have been staying at Geode State Park which is the nicest campground closest to their place.  Today we all decided to do a road trip.  We  took off for Nauvoo, Illinois and specifically the Hotel Nauvoo for their brunch. Needless to say, there was tons of food and it was all good.

The Hotel Nauvoo main building dates from 1841 when it was erected as a residence, in part by J. J. Brendt, a Latter Day Saint, and completed by Adam Swartz, a German immigrant. It was one of the outstanding structures of the area with its spacious rooms, porch and upper verandah, and its unique cupola, all typical of Pioneer Mormon architecture.

After lunch we took a short hike around town.
