Program on the Rich History of Randleman’s Black Community and Churches
The March Program for the St. Paul Museum focused on the history of Randleman’s black community and their churches. Speaking were Louise Hudson for St. Paul’s Methodist Episcopal Church, Clevon McDonald for Ferree’s Chapel Methodist Church, Hazel Patterson for St. Peter’s Methodist Church, and Myrtle Fox for Harshaw Grove Baptist Church . Starting our program were Don Rich and Jerry Brown as they led our visitors with gospel hymns. Click “Here” for a video of this program.
Original Museum Sign Restored
The original metal sign that first marked the St. Paul Museum has been restored and erected on the east side of the museum. Our thanks to Brady Signs who helped us with this project.
St. Paul Restores Paintings by Julia Antoinette Ferree Ingold
St. Paul Museum has had two paintings by Julia Antoinette Ferree Ingold restored to their original condition. The first painting, titled “Mountain of the Holy Cross“, is a copy of the original painting by Thomas Moran, a famous western artist. The second painting is titled “Girl with Lute“. Julia is the daughter of John H. and Mary Randleman Ferree. Mr. Ferree was one of the founders of the St. Paul Methodist Episcopal Church in 1879.
