Lucy Mack Smith Home

While this home is known today as the Lucy Mack Smith home, it was built by Joseph Bates Noble and his wife, Mary. They lived in it from 1843-1846. When the Latter-day Saints left Nauvoo, the home was deeded to Lucy Mack Smith, aging mother of the Prophet Joseph Smith, so she would have a place to live. She remained here for only a few years and then moved closer to other family members. Lucy remained in Nauvoo until her death in 1856 and was buried near her husband, Joseph Smith, Sr., in the Smith Family Cemetery in Nauvoo.
