Morgan Conservatory

My sister recently moved to Akron, so I went to visit for a few days. I figured while I was there, we might as well see the papermaking sights! First we went to the Morgan Conservatory. It's in this great industrial building. 
They have several hollanders, all the necessary vats for western and eastern sheet formation, a vacuum table and several hydraulic presses. They also have a great collection of letterpresses and type. Best of all, they grow their own Kozo! They are one of only two American paper places growing it.
The people there were very pleasant and they had an on-site shop for exotic and handmade papers. 
I give it five stars!
