Salem Publishing House, Inman, Kansas, was owned and operated 1934-58 by the J. H. Klassen family, members of the Krimmer Mennonite Brethren. It printed several Mennonite church papers, such as the Wahrheitsfreund, Christian Witness, Zion's Tidings, and <em>Gospel Tidings</em>, and also the Sower for the Northern Bible Society of Duluth, MN. They also did binding and rebinding of worn Bibles. The firm had its beginning in a low one-room building, but later acquired a brick and tile building, 35 x 100 ft, with a stock room and a small retail bookstore. In 1958 this firm changed its name to The Klassen Bookbindery and sold its printing equipment and bookstore. It still rebinds worn Bibles as a hobby.
