clientuploads/calendar_photos/Dallas Book Cover.jpgDallas, North Carolina: A Brief History. Dallas, the original Gaston County seat for over sixty years, is a quaint small town with a fascinating past. Local historian Kitty Thornburg Heller will be discussing her newest book Dallas North Carolina: A Brief History and provide a glimpse into the lives of those who shaped the county and called Dallas home. A book signing will follow the lecture.

The museum is housed in an 1852 brick Greek Revival style hotel that has been adapted for visitors and travelers of today. The museum also contains North Carolina’s largest public collection of horse-drawn vehicles consisting of sleighs, drays, wagons, and buggies and is the home of the Ties that Bind: Carolinas Textile Exhibit.
