Some older historical sites are period recreated but the EB Grandin building is the original 1920 structure. While the displays and many artifacts are modern the experience of the visit takes you back in history and you can feel and see the past in rich...More

This is the original printing location of the Book of Mormon. Members and nonmembers will both enjoy the walk through history that the tour gives you. I had never thought about the amount of work that went into the original publication of this wonderful book.

It was great to be walked through the whole printing process from the 1800's. I only wish that we could have actually seen them make a print from their typeset.

This is a great stop to see how the printing of the Book of Mormon took place. The tour is great and they even let you practice the folding of the pages.

As I mentioned in my other reviews about Mormon sites in Palmyra, we're not Mormon, but there's no pressure to convert. With this being said, we were the only nonMormons on this tour so naturally the tour guide referenced things that probably only Mormons know....More
