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.

Thus was the place that the book of Mormon was published. The staff are very nice. There is no fee to enter. The demonstration of book publishing and binding was incredible.

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 usual the LDS Church have done an amazing restoration job with this unique piece of LDS history. This is where the Book of Mormon was first printed. First run tool close to 2 years to complete. A must see!

This was by far one of my most favorite places to visit on our recent Church History road trip. The missionary tour guide was very informative and shared spiritual experiences of the work that transpired in this building. A must see!

This site is an interesting location to learn more about Mormonism and the printing process behind the Book of Mormon. More so, if one is not into learning about LDS history, it is a cool visit to learn about 1800 printing methods. If you have...More
