The Hendersonville Heritage Museum is a great place to visit for everyone. It takes you from the revolution up thru present day. It shows you uniforms of the period along with weapons and tidbits about it. They also have other displays such as the largest pig ever recorded. There is also a small gift shop. Admission is free unless you... More

My husband and I stopped in the courthouse and stayed about a half hour wandering through their wonderful exhibits of local history. Free admission. It is the County's 2nd Courthouse, built in 1905 next to the original (built 1840) which was torn down when the 2nd Courthouse was completed. In 1979 the current courthouse was added to the National Register... More

We were in town for a day trip, it was hot, and there was this big beautiful building that happened to be a museum in the midst of a very beautiful Main Street. We were happy to find it nicely air-conditioned inside. What a gem! Visiting museums like this should be mandatory for local education. The exhibits were a wealth... More

What a privilege to see a screening of the movie Pork Chop Hill, starring Gregory Peck as Lt. Joe Clemons, a local hero and resident of Hendersonville. Joe and his wife of 65 years attended the screening and the reception arranged by the Museum. The Museum continues to bring history alive to residents and visitors alike.

This museum is a hidden gem and one of the best I have ever been to in a small town. The artifacts are mainly donated from local families and preserved and displayed with true care and clear descriptions of their importance. We did encounter a sweet volunteer who walked us through and showed and explained truly interesting facts. There is... More

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
