In 2016, a small group of people wanted to pursue the possibility of creating a county museum. The group named themselves The Graham County Historical Association and received their non-profit status. In 2017, the Snider building, rich in history itself, was purchased to become the future home of the Graham County Museum and Heritage Center. Remodeling, renovations and structural changes are now in progress. A new roof was recently added and work as not moved inside. The group continues to collect local histories, family stories, old photographs and artifacts important to telling the story of Graham County, North Carolina. Come join us for a new historical adventure!
The history of the county and the histories of the families of Graham County have been passed down from one person to another since the county was formed in 1872. Our ancestors were strong people who tamed a rugged land and the Graham County Historical Association wants to continue to tell their story.
Our mission is to preserve, interpret and convey Graham County, regional and Appalachian history through exhibitions and educational programs to showcase our history, making Graham County a desired historical destination.
