Nauvoo business owners met recently with Nauvoo Restoration, Inc., the
Mormon organization seeking to restore Nauvoo, and with LDS Church
architect Bob Dewey. In the meeting, Dewey reportedly told the businessmen
that construction on the new Nauvoo Temple could start as early as next
Dewey is said to have told the group that bid invitations for the
construction may be sent out as early as February 2000, and work would
begin sometime in the spring. The design work on the building is currently
being prepared by the St. Louis firm Lew Chiadini Associates Architects and
by Harry Weiss and Associates.
Dewey also indicated that a portion of the building may be open to the
public with displays and other historical information.
