Featured Exhibit

Bills of Sale: Slave Deeds of Guilford County

The exhibit is being presented in partnership with the International Civil Rights Center and Museum and the Guilford County Register of Deeds. In 2015, the Register of Deeds made these slave deeds, dating from 1774 to 1826, available online.
These deeds show transactions concerning men, women, and children of color. The records provide opportunities to reflect on the inhumanity of the trade in people, but they also open research avenues for those looking for family connections. Several deeds will be on display.

SEE ME: Looking with In(ten)tion - open April 27 - July 15

The High Point Museum and High Point University have partnered to bring this exhibit to the Museum. The exhibit is a project created by fourteen High Point University juniors and seniors enrolled in a Service Learning Documentary Photography class under the direction of Benita VanWinkle. The focus involved documenting the immigrants of minority cultures that make up ten percent of the High Point community and the impact they have on the community. 
The students will be conducting a presentation on the exhibit Thursday, April 27 at 10 am and on Saturday, April 29 between 10 am and 1 pm students will be available to discuss the exhibit and answer questions. Both are free and open to the public. 

WWII exhibit, located in the lobby, marks the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It includes items from our collection that that shows the mobilization of the local community during the war.
