About Kings Mountain Historical Museum

Our Mission: Collect, preserve, and interpret history through exhibits, educational programs, tours, and other appropriate means, in order to foster a deeper understanding of the history of our community and the region.

Begun by a collecting group of dedicated citizens, our museum found a home in Kings Mountain’s old post office built in 1939. Today our collection includes a wide range of archives and objects related to our city and the people who have called it home. With several changing exhibits a year, there is always something new to see, and special events often mean opening our two historic houses behind the Post Office. We present several educational programs throughout the year, including scholarly lectures, living history events, historic craft demonstrations, and more. We are dedicated to providing FREE access to this city’s unique history.

The Kings Mountain Historical Museum was chartered in 1986 as a non-profit corporation with assistance from former Mayor John Henry Moss and by Mrs. Hazel Fryer, a strong proponent of the idea for a Kings Mountain museum. At first, the Museum consisted only of storage space in the attic of the old City Hall. As the number of museum objects continued to grow many homes and offices were recruited to store items. The Board of Directors approached the City about using the old Post Office building, which had been empty for ten years. The City bought the structure from the Federal Government in 1987 when the Post Office moved to its new facility. After several years of hard work by tireless volunteers the building was restored, and the Museum officially opened in the fall of 2000.
