History in the Making

Check Out Our Virtual Exhibit!

Check out the virtual exhibit of our collection, Stanly County: “The Land Between the Rivers”, below!

In our latest virtual exhibit, we examine how the people of Stanly County have helped mold and define the cultural landscape of this county for more than 10,000 years.  With so many different cultures and catalysts creating history in this “land between the rivers”, the Stanly County Museum has amassed a large collection of unique artifacts since it started accepting donations in the 1970s.  From the Native Americans to the booming downtowns of the early 20th century, this exhibit showcases the rich history that is Stanly County.
