Picturing history: Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County
This historical facility is located in Quincy, Adams County, Illinois. It is situated adjacent to the mansion of John Wood, mayor of Quincy when the Latter-day Saint refugees arrived after having been driven from the state of Missouri because of the Extermination Order issued by Gov. Lilburn W. Boggs.
Tours of the Wood mansion are directly linked to the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it is likely that Gov. Wood took suffering Latter-day Saints into his own home to offer relief.
The structure seen here contains information about Abraham Lincoln and a number of artifacts of historical significance. Of greatest interest to Latter-day Saints would likely be original keys to the Nauvoo Temple.
