Samuel D. Bissette, a former bank president, has devoted the last fifteen years to painting. His collection of thirty-five paintings depicting North Carolinian scenes from 1885 - 1910 is set to open as a mobile exhibit in 1984. These watercolors show scenes from all over the state. Financial support came from the Wachovia Corporation, and the Saint John's Museum of Art is arranging the tour. Bissette focuses on showing historical scenes in order to preserve North Carolina history. He predicts that his collection will be of special interest during the millennium celebration in 2000.
