The museum offers a comprehensive look at life in the Charlotte region from the Revoultionary War times to the present. Four galleries lead visitors from the early settlement days to the first U.S. gold rush, to the dark days of slavery, the Civil War and the rise of textiles and banking.

This building was built in 1911 on to an already standing wall with the Bull Durham add on it. We have uncovered part of the Bull Durham add and hope to do more in the future. In this first room we have the original 1921 LaFrance Fire Truck purchased by the City of Cherryville. On the wall behind the truck you see a 9 x 10 foot wall hanging of this building with the fire truck and the firemen at that time.
