Loved the Book of Mormon publication site. The tour was very interesting, we loved learning about the whole printing process and seeing the equipment! You even get your own example of how the first pages are folded to make the books.

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.

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.
