Scovil Backery in Historic Nauvoo - "The Scovil Bakery was one of several such establishments in Nauvoo in the 1840s. Lucius Scovil and his wife, Lury, built and operated this bakery. They supplied Nauvoo residents with bread, a variety of jams, jellies, confections, and marriage cakes costing from $1 to $25. They also catered banquets and parties held in the Masonic Hall.
The Scovils were converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kirtland, Ohio, and were baptized by Joseph Smith. Lucius buried four family members before departing to serve a mission in England at a very difficult time. You won’t find his name in many history books, but Lucius’ courage, faith, generosity and ingenuity set him apart as one of the great and noble members of the early LDS Church.
In the reconstructed bakery, you will see one of the original Temple Plates. You will see many interesting and unusual items used for baking during the Nauvoo period. If you are very good, you’ll be treated to one of Nauvoo’s famous gingerbread cookies."
