Custodial History

According to Rev. Benjamin F. Broadway, Sr.’s son, Benjamin F. Broadway, Jr., his father kept his sermons through his Loris pastorate in three wooden boxes made by a member of First Baptist Church in Hamlet, N.C.. Subsequent sermon outlines and notes went into a cardboard box or in manila folders. Benjamin F. Broadway, Jr. organized his father’s papers in the summer of 1999 before his father passed away in December that year. His father gave all his papers to an associational missionary in Rockingham, N.C.  Ben Jr. then took back about one-fourth of the material, which included samples of sermons, and one of the wooden boxes.
