Fodor's Review

Set in a Romanesque church dating from 1892, the museum has displays about the city's own O. Henry and Dolley Madison. There's also an exploration of the Woolworth sit-in, which launched the civil rights movement's struggle to desegregate eating establishments. Permanent exhibits include collections of Confederate weapons and Jugtown pottery. Behind the museum are the graves of several Revolutionary War soldiers.
