Founders Found a New Home

Portraits of Samuel Moore and Eliza Worthington Moore, founders of Mooresville, Indiana, have found a new home at Mooresville Public Library.  They now hang proudly in the MPL Indiana Room.  Click the photos to enlarge.

These portraits were drawn circa 1850.  We have blogged about the Founders before, so please feel free to take a look at our archived blog postings about the couple.  Also check out our feline roving reporter's blog posts about the Moores' last resting place in "old" Mooresville Cemetery, on land that the couple donated to the town.  It was the original site of the local Methodist Episcopal (M.E.) Church, which Eliza helped to establish.
