There hasn't been any proof of BoM civilizations near Palmyra, or anywhere on the American continents.
Yet there is sparse ancient civilization history, which shouldn't be surprising given indigenous people lived here long before Europeans colonialized America. What it isn't about are Lamanites or Nephites or ancient Israelites coming here on a boat.
"Two great ancient American civilizations lived in the Palmyra area – the Adena Culture, which existed from 1000 BC to 300 BC, and the Hopewell Culture, which existed from 300 BC to 400 AD. These great civilizations have also been called the “mound builders” because of the thousand of mounds that have been discovered where they lived. The mounds were used chiefly as burial places, but also as foundations for buildings, temples, and fortresses...."http://www.palmyrainn.com/history-palmyra/
