The MMHC is now celebrating 50 years of service for the church. In 1969 Bishop Leslie Marston set out to preserve Free Methodist history through a new historical center. It began in Winona Lake, IN from his own personal collection and grew from there under the supervision of his daughter Evelyn Mottweiler. It continued after the denominational headquarters moved to Indianapolis as the Marston Memorial Historical Center. And it has continued to grow in recent years as the historical center has added spaces dedicated to an archive and chapel. You can access the growing collection available online at our website.
