Have not been to this museum in about 20 years. Remember going to weddings, parties, and museum viewings in our early years in Goldsboro. Is it a hotel now?

Enjoyed the museum's exhibit for Black History Month. It was wonderful to see so much information about local people from the Black community who have played important roles in history of Wayne County.

We really enjoyed our time at this museum. The building is really old, very lovely and well-kept. The local history was really interesting, and they have done a great job with the displays. The pig on the porch was great. :)
