Montpelier in Bear Lake County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
Many of the older residents of our community remember when a Linotype was operated near the front window of the building. Ruth Taylor, one of the owners of the newspaper, gathered crowds of onlookers as she typed copy there. The old Linotype is still stored in one of the back rooms of the building along with other old printing equipment.
