My son, sister and I visited this museum. It was very interesting. I am always interested in the local history of places I visit. The guided tour is a must. The tour guide was very informative and could answer all of our questions,

I had never heard about a group from Mecklenberg declaring independence from England almost a year before we actually did declare independence from England. Also, nice guided tour of the historical buildings on the grounds.

This is a nice museum with a modern building and a historic house. Requires some walking. The modern displays have a lot of reading and not that many artifacts. Guide was knowledgeable.
