Exhibitions in the Lincoln County Museum of History showcase historically significant artifacts and objects from the museum’s collections and loaned objects that fit into the themes of our long-term and temporary exhibitions. The exhibitions serve to educate our audiences about the history of Lincolnton and Lincoln County. In addition, staff organizations exhibitions for the purpose of evoking discussions about local history, material culture, and historic preservation. Artifacts and objects on display in our exhibitions help bridge the gap between the past and present, providing a tangible link to people, places, and events.
Currently, the museum has installations on Catawba Valley pottery, the iron industry in Lincoln County, and cabinetmakers Augustus P. James and Edgar James.
