They Must Have a HUGE Dining Room Table

Posted on Thu, Jun 15, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Memphians Tom and Barbara Southwell have amassed more than 2,000 limited-edition dinner plates commemorating the history of the Methodist Church. The Guinness Book of World Records certified the Southwells as the owners of the largest plate collection in the world. Some 600 of their plates are now on display through October at the World Methodist Council Museum in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina.
