The National Temperance Society and Publishing House was founded in 1865. During its first 60 years, it published over a billion pages of literature in support of the temperance movement.

Its three monthly magazines had a combined circulation of about 600,000. They were The National Temperance Advocate for adults, The Youth's Temperance Banner for adolescents, and The Water Lily for children.

The Society also published over 2,000 books and pamphlets in addition to textbooks, posters and flyers.
