Title

Church Attendance, Saint Paul's Mission

Description

Monacan Indian members of Saint Paul's Mission near Bear Mountain in Amherst County gather in this photograph taken by the Episcopal minister John Haraughty sometime in the 1950s or 1960s.

The log cabin, serving as a church, had existed on the Bear Mountain site since about 1868. In 1908, the Episcopal minister Arthur P. Gray Jr. established Saint Paul's Mission and added classrooms to the cabin. The Bear Mountain Indian Mission School enrolled students through the seventh grade until public school desegregation in 1964.
