Gibsonville, a town that straddles the Guilford County-Alamance County border, was incorporated in 1871. The museum features a permanent exhibit of artifacts and photographs related to early businesses and prominent residents. These include The Lahoma silent theatre (now Kimber's restaurant); the Overman Chair factory; the Gibsonville Drug Co.; Mrs. P.T. Burke, first secretary-treasurer of the North Carolilna PTA organization; and former Gibsonville Mayor Berry Davidson, who built Minneola Cotton Mill in 1886. Other exhibits include "Gibsonville Gold Mine" which covers 75+ years of mining operations in the area and the Gibsonville School, built in 1923.
