The museum has begun our first stage of reopening to the public, starting with the opening of the grounds of the 1774 Alexander Homesite one Saturday each month. Tickets are on sale now for the October 24, 2020 An Afternoon on the Grounds experience.

Each month this fall, visitors can explore the historic site and learn about Charlotte history safely. Visit the Events page to learn more and to find our upcoming online programs. Learning opportunities for students and families can be found on our Digital Learning page.

We need your financial support to serve the community during this challenging time and to keep protecting Charlotte’s oldest home, the 1774 Alexander Rock House.

Can you support us with a donation or membership today?
