Museum Of The Waxhaws

Museum Of The Waxhaws

The museum is a regional attraction dedicated to the history of the Waxhaws region and the memory of our nation's 7th President, who was a native of the Waxhaws. Particular attention is given to Scots-Irish immigration and the rural life of these early settlers to the Waxhaws.

In addition there are exhibits interpreting the American Revolution in the region, as well as exhibits on agriculture and important crops and the Civil War. The turn of the century exhibit gives a unique look at the town of Waxhaw as it existed around 1900.

We hope you enjoy our work.
