History in the Making

Mission Statement

The Stanly County Museum is dedicated to presenting the highest quality exhibits and educational programming. We fulfill our mission by designing and providing exhibitions, public programs, and educational experiences that promote the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of Stanly County’s diverse population and history. The Museum is committed to supporting and giving voice to all people of Stanly County while maintaining the highest standards of professional, intellectual, and ethical responsibility.

The Stanly County Museum presents local, regional, and national histories as culturally diverse stories of human accomplishment, adversity, and perseverance with respect and sensitivity to all cultures. We strive for a culturally diverse staff and volunteer base to represent and contribute to our vision.
