The Mountain Gateway Museum and Heritage Center collects and preserves artifacts and other historical materials relating to the history and heritage of North Carolina in a local, regional, national, and international context to assist people in understanding how the past influences the present. Admission to the museum's exhibits and most programs is free, however donations are always welcome. The museum grounds also include two beautifully restored log cabins and a covered gazebo, which are often used during events and are open to the public. To learn more about the museum, including a calendar of events and descriptions of current exhibits, click here to be directed to the museum website.
The Friends of the Mountain Gateway Museum plan to aid museum staff in implementation of its mission and to help expand exhibits, special events, festivals, classes and other activities on the grounds in an effort to encourage more visitors and support. We hope to bring fresh ideas and more financial support to the museum through this new nonprofit!
Our key focus right now is a major funding drive so that we can raise the funds necessary to enable additional programs and events. If you are able to help in any way, whether it be financially, as a volunteer or as a contributor to a possible future event (artist, performer, etc)., please get in touch!
