Mormon economic history exhibit – Church History Symposium, March 1, 2018

For those who are planning to attend the upcoming Church History Symposium at BYU on March 1, L. Tom Perry Special Collections will have on display a special exhibit of artifacts and documents from our collections related to the Symposium’s theme of Mormon economic and financial history.  On exhibit will be original Mormon currency from the Kirtland Safety Society Bank, Nauvoo House Association stock certificates, and early Utah paper currency. The exhibit will also show documents related to financing the construction of the Kirtland and Nauvoo Temples, including a Hyrum Smith diary, and the Provo Tabernacle. Also shown will be documents related to other Mormon financial or economic enterprises in 19th Century Utah, such as the Bishop’s General Store House, ZCMI, local co-operatives and the United Order.

This exhibit will be in the main lobby of Special Collections on Thursday, March 1, and thereafter in the Special Collections Reading Room, until the end of March. Please stop by to see these amazing documents!
