The Museum is operated by the High Point Historical Society, a private, non-profit organization founded in 1966. The High Point Historical Society is dedicated to researching the history of the High Point area and presenting local history to the public through its Museum exhibitions and programs. Membership in the Society is open to all that are interested in these objectives.
The Historical Society works together with the City of High Point to provide financial support to the Museum. Additional funds are raised through membership sales, Museum Store proceeds, sponsorships, special events and grants. Admission to the Museum is free.
