The Red Brick Store Reviews & Ratings

  • The Red Brick Store is a fun place to go when visiting Nauvoo. You'll get to see a representation of what the store looked like when Joseph Smith was alive, and you'll get to purchase some cool souvenirs as well. They have kids toys that would have been similar to the time period that our kids thought were cool as well. Also, get an ice cold root beer from the counter. It was really good!

  • A great place to stop and learn the history of Nauvoo and this little shop where Joseph Smith spent part of his time. There's recreations of the first printed Book of Mormons (no verses, it reads just in chapters like a normal book), toys you can buy that are similar to the ones children played with in the 1840's, and ice cold root beer behind the counter. Make sure you chat with the shopkeeper who has so much to tell, and go upstairs to see the office where Joseph Smith worked.

  • A sacred place. The upper room was when the Women's organization was organized by Joseph Smith. The first temple endowments happened in this room.

  • Visiting the red brick store which is a place of history for me. See what the Relief Society was organized Persephone important meetings to place for the church in in our history thanks it's all a little closer I think to the events of that time and helps us to understand some of the hardships that the saints had to go through.

  • I bought some great old fashioned root beer
