A great place to see what day-to-day life was like in the rural South is the Museum of Agriculture and History which is part of the North Carolina Rural Heritage Center.
The museum showcases the unique history of farming and industry in the region with displays of agricultural and textile machinery and early farm implements. There are antique cars and a fire engine from yesteryear, local art, model trains, and numerous artifacts from the Civil War. The museum also includes a fully restored, diesel powered train engine donated by Gulf & Ohio Railways, Inc..
Don’t miss our collection of books and collectibles. Our friendly museum staff is happy to answer your questions. Open weekends from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment on other days.
