Nauvoo, Illinois, February 11th, 1841, 1 Share = $50, I/U stock certificate that appears like a banknote, 8 x 2.4 inches, Black on white paper, S/N 167, Eagle on left counterfoil and Nauvoo House on top, Signed by George Miller as President and John Snider as Secretary, Uncirculated to CU with toning on top left corner. In January 1841, Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, received a revelation with instructions to construct a house in Nauvoo which would be “a resting-place for the weary traveler “. The Nauvoo House Association was created on 23 February 1841. Construction began later in 1841, with Smith placing the original manuscript of the Book of Mormon in the cornerstone of the building. Smith and his brother Hyrum were killed by a mob in June 1844 and their bodies were secretly buried in the cellar of the unfinished house to prevent their bodies from being stolen. Later, their bodies were removed and buried close to the Mansion House. The house was purchased by the Mormon Church in 1909 and is still owned by them today
