THE GILDED AGE OF KINGS MOUNTAIN, NC

JUNE 22-OCTOBER 23, 2021

The city of Kings Mountain, NC was incorporated on February 11, 1874 during the era termed the "Gilded Age" which refers to the time period between 1870 and 1900. This period of time often evokes images of great wealth and businessmen such as Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, and G.W. Vanderbilt who became wealthy as the steel, oil, and railroad industries flourished. This exhibit explores the beginnings of Kings Mountain and how the "Gilded Age' in North Carolina was a time of dramatic cultural transformation bringing new technology, new consumer goods, new patterns of living, and new opportunities for women.
