|Nauvoo Temple, 2001|
|Viewed from the west, the Temple spire rises above the roof of the Saint Mary Monastery. The monastery has been purchased by the Church; it’s now the Joseph Smith Academy. When we were there, the transfer was still happening, and the sisters hadn’t yet left. Our great-great-grandparents Fisher and their family lived behind (to the west of) this view point and to the left (north).|
In 1843, a lot of houses would have blocked the view of Temple
Hill from this spot in the old town, maybe half-way to the river.
