Museum of North Carolina Minerals Repairs

Since 1955, the Museum of North Carolina Minerals has served as a hub of information about the area’s rich mineral resources and mining heritage. Constructed in part with stone quarried at Grandfather Mountain, the aging building's exterior requires repairs, including the replacement of damaged wood and fresh paint. Inside, the building needs a new HVAC system to ensure adequate climate control to protect the exhibits. This project also includes refreshing the landscaping around the museum, installation of a new flagpole, and a ground inspection to address any drainage issues. Your gift will help ensure this educational site continues to be an inviting and educational destination for visitors.
