Here’s what’s happening at the NCCHP museum at the drum factory in August.  Mark your calendars and visit soon!

The Danes are here!  The newest rotating exhibit features the Danish colony that settled in Granville in the late 1800’s.  Come learn about Denmark and how, when, where and why so many Danes settled in Granville.  Many old artifacts are on display including a shipping trunk and wooden shoes as well as many pictures of the early Danish families.   Lots to see and explore about the lives and contributions of these families to Granville and the surrounding towns. 

On Tuesday, 8/19 at 6:30, the free monthly Living History series features Dennis Picard from the Storrowton Village Museum  presenting a program titled “A Stone Mason’s Tool Chest”.   Join us for an entertaining and informative evening as Dennis shares his collection of period tools and describes the techniques used by area stone masons to make tombstones, wells, fence posts and more.  Check out the website for additional information about the living history series and upcoming attractions.
