In 1839 Joseph Smith bought the property of Commerce, Illinois as a refuge for the LDS people who were being driven from Missouri by religious persecution. It was a swamp and a few log cabins.
The site had once been the indian village "Quashquema". The city was named Nauvoo, which in Hebrew means "Beautiful Place".
