  • On Tuesday evening, March 26, the missionaries of the New York Rochester Mission conducted on open house at the Book of Mormon Publication Site in Palymyra.  
    The open house celebrated the 183rd anniversary of the date when the Book of Mormon first became available for purchase in the Bookstore owned and operated  by Mr. Egbert B. Grandin in 1830. Members of the Church from the Buffalo, Rochester and Palmyra New York Stakes were invited to attend and were encouraged to bring less active and non-member friends.
    Approximately 150 guests participated in tours of the restored Grandin Building conducted by sister missionary companionships. On each of the three floors of the building, senior missionary couples, dressed in time period clothing, explained or reenacted events surrounding the coming forth of the Book of Mormon.
    Light refreshments were served at the conclusion of each tour.  A spirit of fellowship and testimony were in great abundance throughout the evening.
