Greensboro Historical Museum [NC]

The 17,000-square-foot Greensboro Historical Museum preserves and presents the history of the Piedmont area. Visitors can explore exhibits recreating Greensboro life at the turn of the previous century or on topics including short-story writer O. Henry, First Lady Dolley Madison, the Greensboro Sit-ins, war, and work life. They can also tour the 1788 Isley House, the 1781 McNairy House (restored to its 1850 condition), and the First Presbyterian Cemetery.

The museum offers exhibits, guided tours for school groups, traveling trunks on loan for a small fee, in-class outreach presentations for a small fee, and occasional recreational and educational events.
