Free museum with a large gift shop. The shop offers a 10% military discount. The battlefield is located about 4 miles from the interstate.

We spent time in the museum at Averasboro talking with the staff. While the folks were volunteers , they were very knowledgeable about the battle as well as the battle at Bentonville. The collection at the museum was very good. Well worth the stop

Very well kept cemetery and replicated slave house on property. The museum had many artifacts and great information for Civil War enthusiasts. The last time I visited there was not a museum, so it was great to go again after 20 years.

A group of us were attending a church conference in Dunn, NC, so we decided to sight see around town during our time off. This place was nice, but not much to see, but a lot to learn.

Learning of a Civil War museum commemorating a dustup between Union and Confederate troops referred to as the Battle of Averasboro, Ben and Mrs Too detoured briefly to take in this commemoration of a relatively small and unimportant skirmish. Unimportant on the grand scale perhaps,...More

Averasboro was a small battle staged against General Sherman during the Civil War. This is an excellent stop for the history buff and school field trips to learn about Sherman's March and the life of the people it affected.

Not really much to see here. They do have a nice gift shop with a good selection of Civil War items, books etc. Worth an hour or so.
