Saul at Rendcomb College – History

The statue of King Saul by William Wetmore Story resided in 'Saul's Hall' at Rendcomb College from 1865 until 2018.
The history was presented in a pamphlet researched by Michael H. C. Martin. This was revised in June 2019 to create a searchable
document, following the relocation of the five ton statue to the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh USA in late 2018.
