1800’s working village wants to build authentic print shop

Conner Prairie [www.connerprairie.org], a fantastic hands-on 1800’s working village/living museum in Fishers, Indiana, has had a late 1800’s printing press donated and are in need of wood letters of all sizes/shapes/fonts. Eventually, the hope is to build an authentic print shop in the late 1800’s area. This is an incredible opportunity to educate folks about early printing. Anyone out there interested in perhaps running the printer or making a charitable donation of wood letterpress? Suggested hands-on related activities for kids? Any input/help will be appreciated.
