The Nauvoo Temple, built between 1840 and 1846 and dedicated publicly on 1–3 May 1846, stood as a monument to the determination of the Saints to “build a house to my name, for the Most High to dwell therein.” (D&C 124:27.) The temple was burned by an arsonist’s fire in 1848, and the walls were destroyed by a tornado in 1850.
