Kings Mountain Historical Museum

Educational opportunities and resources abound at KMHM!

KMHM preserves and interprets three historic structures including a 1939 Post Office building and two 19th century homes. These buildings provide a backdrop for educational tours that interpret the lifestyles of 19th and 20th century Cleveland County residents, and a variety of other topics relating to local history.  Group tours of the current Museum exhibit and all three buildings may be scheduled in advance for Tuesday-Friday from 10:00am–4:00pm by calling (704) 739-1019 or emailing  Programs relating to the study of earth sciences and local geology may also be scheduled in advance on an ongoing basis.

The Museum presents several changing exhibits throughout the year.  Most exhibits include themes relating to history and social studies; some also touch on the fields of science, math, and technology. We are eager to customize tours to align with your curriculum and programming needs whenever possible. Museum staff members may also be scheduled in advance for outreach programs, to provide lectures and activities at your location relating to a range of historic content, preservation education, and career development.

Numerous educational programs are also presented at KMHM each year, such as scholarly lectures, living history programs, and children’s programs. We encourage you to frequently visit our website and our Facebook page to learn more about the educational opportunities currently available. We also encourage you to reach out to us; we are always looking for new ways to partner with our local schools and community organizations to benefit the citizens of this region.
