We invite you on a journey to yesterday
On your journey we want you to visit with the people, learn of their contributions, and reflect on milestone events that helped shape their lives and Henderson County, North Carolina.
We would like for you to view “evidences of yesterday” that will remind you of the heritage that has been the legacy of this county’s pioneers. Colorful exhibits, diorama, educational programs, research, and collections reflect how the people of this county responded to their cultural, educational, political, and natural environments.
This Museum collects, preserves, researches, and exhibits a collection of historical and cultural artifacts. The process takes many shapes, forms, and media.
This museum, found within the Henderson County Historic Courthouse, seeks to preserve history and a sense of place. Consisting of six rooms, approximately 2000 square feet, the Museum spaces are designed for flexibility, capability, and versatility.
The Heritage Museum partners with other organizations that focus on “history and community” and provides services, upon request, to groups and individuals.
This Museum promotes appreciation for the people who have created and developed this county.
Welcome to the Henderson County Heritage Museum.
