Six Thousand Years of Writing & Printing
The Crandall Historical Printing Museum is a non-profit IRS approved 501(c)(3) charitable and educational foundation. Over 30,000 annual patrons come from public and private schools, colleges, universities, professional groups, travel agencies, and corporations along with individuals from churches, senior citizen groups, youth organizations, and families to enjoy its offerings.
As visitors to the Crandall Museum learn through hands-on experience the methods of invention and printing, they also are taught by expert docents the significant impact printing has had on world history. This story is seldom told or preserved, even in the school systems. The process of re-discovery of these printing methods at the museum has also helped to uncover new understandings of the past and develop greater insights and appreciations of the inventors, philosophers and printers that have so shaped our current events. Outreach programs, community events, research, publication and academic support are part of the museum's educational mission.
