Hill Cumorah Attendants Really Like Sweets

What: The Brighton-Pittsford Post describes the changes that Palmyra undergoes as it gets ready for the big pageant.

Quote: "Ice cream, he said, is one of his biggest sellers during pageant time. Thomas said each year he stocks up, making at least two times the normal amount of fudge and candies he normally carries."

Reaction: Ice cream? Are you kidding me? They didn't have ice cream back in Joseph Smith's day. That's cheating.


  1. I don't get the "replicas of the Book of Mormon" part...wouldn't that just be an actual Book of Mormon?

  2. The Chill and Grill sells huge soft ice cream cones, and great burgers. It is a must if you go to the pageant.

  3. Britt,

    It must mean replicas of the first edition of the Book of Mormon--the brown, hardbound, chapterless kind.

  4. The first ice cream parlor in America opened in 1776. Washington, Jefferson and James Madison served it to guests on occasion.

    And really, I think ice cream and fudge is a better thing to stock up on than whiskey and smokes.
