Lots of books and info on church history. I even bought on old hymn book. and spoke to Richard one of the Apostles about the history of temple lot and what is going on now. Cool for hard core mormon history buffs.

There is a historical marker that gives the history and marks where the church stood. It is located near ample street parking and near the visitors center.

Loved this church. It had a small country church feeling but at the same time was sophisticated. The staff is very welcoming.
