Fodor's Review

Try your hand at printing the way it used to be done: painstakingly setting each letter by hand. Robert Smail's print shop, founded more than a century ago to produce materials for nearby factories, boat tickets, theater posters, and the local newspaper, is still a working print shop as well as a museum. Two great waterwheels once powered the presses, and they are still running. The guided tour, which includes making your own bookmark, takes 90 minutes.
