Mormon Church documents
The artefacts date to the foundation of the Mormon Church in the early 1800s

Elder Steven Snow, a church historian commented: "For the first time really we're displaying some very important documents which are really foundational to our history.

"We literally have millions of pages of journals, diaries of documents, artefacts, but of all of those documents, artefacts, we believe this collection represents well the Restoration of the Church."
