So when I was researching another topic: "what was the origin of the term Nauvoo?", I came across more BY info. Many use to refer to the upper section of Pine Street as Nauvoo, so why? Is it because BY lived there? And the Mormons named a town in Illinois Nauvoo. Was this because of Port Byron? Then I stumbled across this from 1907.
So we are left with many questions still;
Did BY live on the corner of Pine and South?
Did BY build and live in the yellow house off Seneca Street?
Was this house moved?
What are the actual dates of BY time in Port Byron?
Getting back to Nauvoo, if the written record is to be believed, the use of Nauvoo predates Brigham Young's arrival in Port Byron, so it may be that he took the name with him as he moved west. Nauvoo means "To be beautiful", which BY may have found in Illinois, or it may have reminded him of Port Byron.
Just to complete the story, at least for this blog post, here is the plaque that sits at the corner of Pine and Main.
