Heber-C-Kimball-home by Spencer Mackay
Heber-C-Kimball-home, a photo by Spencer Mackay on Flickr.

Sketched in line and painted in water color (plein aire) from across the street in historic restored section of Nauvoo, Illinois. Was there with my wife for a few days on a great vacation, wonderful place to visit. Many other interesting homes and buildings from the period of 1838-1846 have been restored and are full of period furniture. My Great-Great-Grandfather lived here with his family from 1842-1846 before he left for the Salt Lake Valley as a pioneer/refugee.
