Temple Jail

After the Nauvoo Temple was destroyed, there were many stones left lying around. These stones were turned into a jail. These are some of the original stones of the temple. This jail was actually used for several years here in Nauvoo. As you can see, it it now protected from souvenier seekers who want to take a "chip off the old block". When I looked at this, I thought of how symbolic it really is. Those who do not have their temple work done, are as if they are in prison because their eternal progress has been stopped. The other thing I thought of was the Liberty Jail, and how symbolic that place is.
