Interest in Nauvoo Temple Growing

NAUVOO, ILLINOIS -- Interest from neighbors in the Nauvoo Temple, now under construction, is growing, says a local historian. John Hallwas says that the new building will "add significantly to the historical attractiveness of the community of Nauvoo. It was very carefully done." At least 35,000 people from Illinois have ordered tickets to see the temple, followed by another 25,000 from Iowa. The town could see seven to 10 times its 1,063 people visit each day during the open house, and may swell to a temporary population of 20,000 -- the same level it saw during the height of its Mormon history. Already the LDS Church has given out all 250,000 tickets for the open house, which runs from May 18 to June 22. The temple should be complete in April or early May and plans an open house ahead of its dedication, scheduled for June 27th.
