Details

Once the "Corduroy Capital of the World," Haw River was home to three North Carolina governors; to six inventors; to William Bason, one of the state's first dentists; to Charlie Poole, one of the originators of old time country music; to gardener Rudolph Topel; to Artelia Roney Duke, wife and mother of the founders of the American Tobacco Company and many other interesting people. Artifacts from three centuries and a large collection of photographs from the last 130 years celebrate the history of the town founded by Adam Trollinger in 1745. The museum is a salute to the life and the people of an American small town.
