The Brunswick County/Lake Gaston Tourism Association worked with the now-closed St. Paul’s College to preserve historic items related to James Solomon Russell. The association and college preserved historical artifacts, records, photographs, memorabilia and other items documenting the life of Russell and the college he founded.
A committee has been formed to start work on creating the James Solomon Russell/St. Paul’s College Museum and Archive.
“This new museum will be a great asset to this community, both alumni groups and all visitors who want to research and browse the works of this distinguished intellectual pioneer,” said James Grimstead, chairman of the committee.
