Then you go into the main room downstairs. Everything is the same on each side. The benches have very straight high backs. I think they are quite comfortable. But no cushions.
Closer view of the front.
And on each side is an identical cute little stove.
Upstairs they used to display souvenir items that missionaries would bring back from their missions. They called them "curiosities". Now there is a display of artifacts that were found during the restoration of Nauvoo.
There is a library where you can find the names of the Seventies who lived in Nauvoo.
There are matching book cases on each side.
I found my ancestor, Nathan Williams Packer, in one of the books. His brother, Jonathan Taylor Packer is there also (on a different page). He is Boyd K. Packer's ancestor.

I really like serving in the Seventies Hall and it's even more fun when I get to serve there with Elder Knudsen.
