We stopped in mainly to find out if any of the mansions in Holly springs were open to the public. I had toured a couple when I was a kid with my family over 50 years ago. Didn't find any mansions to tour but did...More

My wife and I visited in July, from out of state. The museum is old school, and we found it very interesting and enjoyable. Exhibits ranged from the poignant (yellow fever epidemic) to the quirky ("Rattlesnake that nearly got Dr. Walker Swaney"). The highlight was...More

This is a small museum, but it is well worth your time. There were items I had had seen before, and the ladies will give you the tour and their input or you can tour on your own. Don't miss this!
