The Center also contains exhibits relative to the Scottish settlement of the southeastern region of North Carolina, as well as artifacts relative to the famed Scottish heroine Flora MacDonald who resided briefly in the region in the late 18th century. The Center also houses the "Fiona Ritchie Radio Archive for 'The Thistle and Shamrock'" - the archive of the popular radio program heard over hundreds of National Public Radio stations nationwide.
