From the Historic District of Nauvoo, Illinois, Visitor’s Center if you leave out of the East doors you will walk into a beautiful garden with flowers, shrubs and trees with brick walkways.

It is the Monument to Women Memorial Garden The garden consists of a central sculpture of a woman, and the garden is enhanced by 12 life-sized figures expressing the widely varied nature of women’s vital role in society. The display may well be the largest commissioned display of sculpture in the world dedicated to women
of the past, present, and future. The statues, which were dedicated in 1976, identify some of the significant dimensions of a woman’s life.

Nauvoo Historic District was listed among the National Historical Landmarks of Illinois on 10-20-1966

I love being able to capture a moment in time with my camera. I take photos based on what I feel is beautiful, unique or silly. I have a great variety of photographs, from the details of a flower to landscapes, clouds and sky, mountains and more.
