My purpose today is not to explain the history of Nauvoo but to share some pictures from outside the Visitors Center. On one side is what is known as the Monument to Women garden, and the pics with statues are from such. The statues reflect various stewardships and responsibilities of women. There are thirteen statures; I only show a few below (click on each to enlarge). The following link is an explanation of the monument: http://lds.org/ensign/1977/03/the-nauvoo-monument-to-women-a-photo-essay?lang=eng. .
