Our museum houses artifacts and documents dating from the late 1700s. Exhibits include the handwritten journal of our first minister, Joseph Pilmoor, and a pulpit Bible that Francis Asbury brought from London to present to St. George's. You can also see original Love Feast cups, membership tickets, and portraits of early church figures. The benches from the Prayer Meeting Society are still in use today in our Fellowship Hall, carrying tradition right into the present.
Visit as an individual or schedule a tour for a group. Your experience at St. George's will help you understand the unique relation of Methodism and colonial American history. If you are coming in a tour bus, please click here for parking instructions.
TEACHERS! Our 2013 Temple University Cultural Fieldwork Initiative interns, Jared Stock and Shawn Reath, have devised a resource for teaching Civil Rights history. There are two lesson plans, a scavenger hunt and multiple online references. Check it out, and contact the church office if you are interested in bringing a group of students or fellow teachers for a tour.
