*For the summer baseball season, the High Point Museum will open an exhibit highlighting baseball in High Point. “At the Old Ballgame” will be on display through August 14. Area newspapers have documented baseball in High Point since the 1880s. By 1908, The High Point Enterprise noted increasing attendance at games because “Baseball is very popular with the average citizen.” This exhibit looks back at our city’s enthusiasm for the national pastime, from Little League to the old Industrial League to professional baseball in the area. 

"Pandemic Perspectives:  The Day Our World Changed," the product of a partnership with Millis Road Elementary School.  This exhibit, located in the historic park, shares the thoughts and feelings of a 4th grade class as they experienced the COVID-19 pandemic.      

                    For more information, please call 336-883-3023.                                                                     

The Museum is located at 1859 East Lexington  and is open on Saturdays 10:00 am - 4:30 pm.
