Another local museum is preparing to welcome visitors once again. The Charlotte Museum of History has announced that it will reopen its grounds one Saturday per month beginning October 24th for self-guided, outdoor tours of the 1774 Alexander Rock House, Charlotte’s oldest home site.
You can tour the eight-acre historic site during the “Afternoons on the Grounds” experience on October 24th, November 21st, and December 5th from noon to 5:00 PM. Bring family or friends, enjoy a picnic, and learn about Charlotte’s history, all for a discounted price of $10 per vehicle.
Tickets include a digital guidebook about the people who lived and worked at the 1774 Alexander Rock House, as well as videos and resources that dig deeper into Charlotte’s past. Admission will be limited to support social distancing. Visitors over the age of five are required to wear a face covering when they may be within six feet of any person not in their group, including museum staff.
The Charlotte Museum of History will announce plans in the future for reopening its museum building for in-person exhibits and events. In the meantime, the museum will continue to offer free digital programs, including an online Indigenous Peoples Week celebration in partnership with the Catawba Nation beginning November 9th.
