Nauvoo Temple

After Joseph Smith and his followers left Kirtland, Ohio, they settled in Nauvoo, Illinois, where they built the Nauvoo Temple. Facing persecution, they left only a few years later, ultimately to arrive in Utah, so the original Nauvoo Temple was not used extensively. Damaged by tornado and fire, it was later demolished. In recent years, the Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints has built a replica on the site. This LEGO replica was built by the "grandson of LDS sculptor Avard Fairbanks", though I don't know the name of the builder.
