Great Gatsby: Cleveland County in the Roaring Twenties
June 17 – October 14, 2017
In the 1920s, Cleveland County experienced an economic boom and bust, the heyday of the textile mills, the birth of the political engine known as the Shelby Dynasty, and improved education, healthcare, technology, and transportation systems.  This area also saw violent disputes over labor rights and the racial inequity of the Jim Crow system in that decade.  Visitors will be able to see the dramatic social, economic, and political changes reflected in the clothing, the music, the dances, the slang, and the products of the era.

Toys, Games & TRAINS

November 18, 2017 – January 6, 2018

This annually recurring holiday exhibit fills the Museum with model train displays assembled by the Piedmont “S” Gaugers, as well as railroad memorabilia, and antique toys and games. Visitors of all ages will be enchanted as they explore the miniature snow-covered scenes that line the tracks, and discover the interactive features.  Bring your cameras – this exhibit provides great opportunities for holiday family photos!
