The architecture of this building is beautiful. I can't say I have been inside but I stand in awe outside this place when I visit Hendersonville. The street has beautiful landscaping with trees and seasonal plants. This is the first town I've visited that is pet friendly.

I love museums and hadn't had the chance to visit the Hendersonville Heritage Museum until today. I was warmly greeted by several volunteer staff who provided a quick but informative orientation. While an approaching thunderstorm caused me to leave more quickly than I wanted, I will definitely return to look more closely at the exhibits I saw today and to... More

Hendo shows off this gorgeous building with such care. The exhibits don't change much, but is worthwhile going for at least one time.

I was here for a geocaching scavenger hunt in which I had to find the second time capsule here. I was puzzled, so I asked the officials at the museum, who also were puzzled (I later found it). But I loved their friendliness and I learned a few things about this museum, such as the fact they have a museum... More

A friend pointed out this attraction so we went one Saturday afternoon to check it out. It is such a find! Railroads, Civil War collection, area history and loads of pictures and exhibits. It's free, it's educational and it was a pleasure to learn more about the area through this collection! Please check it out!

We visited the courthouse on a blustery, cold winter day. We were greeted warmly and guided to sign the guest book. We were then given the history of the beautiful building itself and led through the train room where we were told the fascinating story of the train in that area. From there, we were given some information on the... More

A free museum focuses on regional history, with changing exhibits. The area is agricultural, so that is a feature, also the tourist industry dating back to the 1880's. Last summer there was a Civil War exhibit which was interesting and well done. The building itself is no longer a courthouse but is the site of a lot of activities in... More
