This home in Nauvoo, Ill., dates back to the Latter-day Saint period of Nauvoo history. It is located on the northwest corner of Parley and Durphy streets, across from Nauvoo State Park.
Patriarch John Smith was the brother of Joseph Smith Sr., father of the Prophet Joseph Smith. John was called as president of the stake at Adam-ondi-Ahman, the Zarahemla Stake at Lee County, Iowa, and the Salt Lake Stake. "Uncle John," as he was known to many, also served as church patriarch.
He was the father of George A. Smith, who at age 21 was the youngest man to be called as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve. George A. Smith also served in the First Presidency as a counselor to President Brigham Young. George A. was the grandfather of George Albert Smith, eighth president of the church.
The home is privately owned and not open for tours.
