*Nauvoo, Illinois is a small river town just a short 18 minute drive from the Kingsley Inn.  It has a rich history with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, the Icarians and is the home of Illinois' oldest winery.

Joseph Smith was the founder and first president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He presided over the Church until 1844, when he was martyred in Carthage, IL. Under his leadership, Church membership grew from six to today's number at 14 million.

In 1849, another group of persecuted idealists landed in Nauvoo, hoping to make it their home and a place to establish a utopian community. These were followers of the twice-banished Frenchman, Etienne Cabet. The Icarian movement was not a religious organization, but rather a social and political commune, following the ideals set forth in the 1840 book by Etienne Cabet, Voyage en Icarie. By 1858 the dream of utopia in Nauvoo was gone. Many members of the movement in Nauvoo relocated to other settlements in Iowa or California, but some remained in the community. Arriving in the Icarian commune in 1855, Emile Baxter and his family remained in Nauvoo while the society dissipated, began a family winery, today the oldest in Illinois.
