318-Year-Old Bible Found in Nursing Home
A 318-year-old book has sparked a mystery in Iowa. Kathy Magruder found a leather-bound Bible in the back of a retirement home library. This book was the King James version of the Christian Bible printed in Scotland in 1705. Through death and marriage records handwritten into the Bible, Magruder was able to trace the family who originally owned it. Magruder’s next mystery to solve is how the 318-year-old Bible made its way from Scotland to Iowa.
