With electric vehicles becoming more prevelant, I think a good development to draw both members and non-members alike to Nauvoo would be to reach out to Tesla to install a supercharger there. It takes 30-60 minutes to charge and while they are waiting they can check out the historical sites. Here’s the closest chargers based on the map (or see attached): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1c08fU ... onM_dNvVmG

Tesla will also provide the hardware and installation for free for their slower destination charging. They will help pay for chargers that support more than just their own vehicles. https://www.tesla.com/destination-charging

You don't "pass by" Nauvoo. It's far enough out of the way that you have to make a deliberate side trip to see it.

Still, it wouldn't be a bad idea if a EV station was available for people who wanted to stop by. Something that would also accommodate the Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf. I'm not sure what the best way is to get the suggestion to the folks that manage those sites.

Thanks russelhltn! I've been to Nauvoo and yes, it is out of the way. I found the Nauvoo Mission website and submitted this same request there.
