The home of Wilford Woodruff, the fourth prophet of the restoration, is a great home to tour. Although Wilford did not live in his house in Nauvoo long, his home is a special place to visit. Wilford did not live in this brick home for long, only about 64 days before leaving with the Saints to go to Utah. Before living in this house, Wilford had a small log cabin on his property where he lived.
The Wilford Woodruff home was lived in continuously from 1844 until it's four year restoration in 1965! It required minimum restoration and it was the first Nauvoo building authentically restored!
The life and legacy of the prophet Wilford Woodruff is pivotal to the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Wilford Woodruff is remembered as one of the greatest missionaries the restored Church of Jesus Christ has ever had, baptizing more than 2,000 people. He was the Church historian, the president of the St. George Temple and ultimately the fourth prophet when John Taylor passed away. Learn more about Wilford Woodruff click here.
