SALT LAKE CITY — Images of the original Utah Constitution are now available online.

The 116-year-old document, drafted on parchment and approved by President Grover Cleveland in 1896, is available with full-text search on the Utah State Archives website. 

"The state constitution is an important historical record. It is the original document of citizens' rights in Utah," said state archivist Patricia Smith-Mansfield in a news release. "Online access provides the public a wonderful opportunity to see the original state constitution."
