The Museum Advisory Board of the Graham Historical Museum continually works to offer community events and programs that are designed to highlight the town’s rich history.
November 1 – 30, 2019
On November 30, 2018, the Graham Historical Museum re-opened its doors following an 18-month redesign project. The public is invited to stop by the Museum during hours of operation and see the many new and updated exhibits. Graham now has three unique and active museums: The Children’s Museum of Alamance, Alamance Arts, and the Graham Historical Museum. Not bad for a town of just under 15,000 people!
As part of the re-opening celebration, current and former residents are encouraged to come to the Museum during the month of November and share stories about Graham and identify people and places in photos that hang throughout the Museum. Docents will be available to take notes for documenting stories and place name stickers on photos.
Video Project Interviews by the Museum Advisory Board
In an effort to create a living historical account of Graham, the Museum Advisory Board is currently conducting video interviews of residents who grew up in Graham during the early- and mid-twentieth century. This project will record first-hand accounts of life in Graham from those who lived here. Stories can be about shopping in downtown Graham, attending school, working, or simply what day-to-day life was like in Graham. Once interviews have been completed, a video will be produced and shown on a digital kiosk in the Historical Museum during hours of operation. If you would like to share your stories of growing up in Graham or know someone who would be interested in contributing to this unique project, please call (336) 513-5510.
