Person County Museum of History

The Person County Museum of History was founded in 1992, and through the generosity of Dorothy Brooks and family, the County was able to purchase its current property at 309 North Main Street. The quilt square is hung on an old tobacco barn donated by Marilyn Christopher. The pattern is a celebration of Person County history.

This barn is typical of the curing barns with the wooden logs and “chinking” between the logs. In the barn, the Museum displays many items associated with the growing of tobacco. The pack barn is only one of the many buildings on the Museum campus, all of which hold much of the history of Person County and is representative of the eras in which our ancestors lived. Museum visitation hours are Wednesday – Friday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm and Saturday 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. For more information visit, on Facebook, email or call 336.597.2884.
