Paintings and letters on Bishop Joshua Soule, a leader in the Methodist Episcopal Church and the primary author of its founding constitution, and his wife Sara Allen are now on exhibit. An early bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, the Museum’s collection included letters written to his wife as he travelled to and from California as well as Deacon’s Orders with his signature and seal.
