1840s Rufus Abbott Manor
The Rufus Abbott Manor is an 1840's Mormon Nauvoo Bed and Breakfast built by Rufus Abbott in the early 1840's. The home has recently been lovingly restored and is furnished with a wonderful mixture of beautiful antiques and furniture. Of the original 350+ brick homes built in Nauvoo in the early 1840's, this home is one of only some three dozen still standing.
Situated near a farm on the east end of Nauvoo with wonderful surrounding grounds and views, the two-story brick home features four guest rooms with fireplaces in each of the original rooms of the home. Brick from the original temple was used in the reconstruction of the fireplaces. Because of the age of the house the fireplaces cannot be used but add charm to each room. Original wood floors still exist in all rooms except the Keeping Room and the 1923 Parlor Room, and wide original pioneer stairs lead to the upstairs Blue and Quilt Rooms.
