St Paul Church Museum
More Things To See and Do In Randleman
With gasoline prices soaring, I think we should discover other things to see and do right here at home, for low cost alternatives of entertainment.
Here is another activity to consider in the upcoming days and months ahead:
Visit St Paul Museum. St. Paul M. E. Church, South was organized in 1855. In 1879, the present hand-made brick building was erected through the generous funding of John H. Ferree and John Banner Randleman. In 1948, St. Paul merged with Naomi Methodist Church to become First Methodist Church. The last religious service was held in 1951. The church became St. Paul Museum in 1968. (description is from the Northern Randolph Historical Society Web Page.)
Take a trip into our rich past with a visit to St Paul Church/Museum. There you will see artifacts from the past specific to Randleman, and Northern Randolph County. The few remaining artifacts of the first County seat of Johnstonville are here, along with a horse drawn hearse, uniforms, many many more items as well.
While the museum is currently closed, you can still visit the grounds, and even call for an appointment to see it. Later on in the year starting in March there will be certain times that the museum is open. Here is a copy of their schedule:
