interesting museum
Jul 2017 • Couples
The Sallie Mae Ligon Museum & Archives is located on the campus of the Masonic Home for Children. It is the first and oldest operating home for children in North Carolina dating back to 1873 (then called the Oxford Orphan Asylum).

The museum is small but I found it to be very well organized with nice displays and plenty of interesting reading material to give you a good history of the place. We checked in with a very nice lady who walked us through the room giving us a brief history and then we were allowed to go back through on our own to read whatever we wanted to.

After finishing with the museum section (used to be the boys dorm) we walked down the hall to the archives room (used to be the girls dorm) that offered even more interesting history of the place. Certain areas on the campus are off limits so please obey the signs and do not drive around them.
