Education exhibit closing this week

This is the last week to see the education exhibit at the Heritage Museum located in the Historic Courthouse on Main Street.

This exhibit includes a replica of a one-room schoolhouse as it would appear
from 1830-1930 and a complete timeline for all the schools that were in
our county from 1797-1940. There are notebooks on
some of the old schools that contain interesting information.

The Museum will be preparing for the next exhibit, The Golden Age –
The Coming of the Train, with a full scale model of the Saluda Grade made by the
Apple Country Model Railroad Club; an exhibit of the first general store in our city; models of the Historic Courthouse, the Mountain Lily, the tallest steamship; and an early architects exhibit featuring the builder of our Historic Courthouse and the City Hall, Richard Sharp Smith, and Erle Stillwell,  the designer of many houses and buildings in Henderson County. Grand opening of the exhibits will be Saturday, May 18.
