Visited the museum for the first time while in Lewisburg. Very well done museum representing both the house period and Lewisburg's history. There are additional new sections coming to the museum later this year. Please visit the home and museum if you are in town, you will learn a lot and enjoy the exhibits.

Arrived earlier than we had scheduled. The lady (I think her name is Debbie) greeted us warmly and was very flexible to let us start the tour earlier. She guided us through the whole house and was very knowledgeable. Definitely a great place for local history! Also the house was beautiful and maintained very well! Parking behind the house is quite convenient.

“Historic Gem” Beginning in August of 2020, the North House Museum in Lewisburg WV will be celebrating its 200th anniversary. This is a must stop anytime when visiting the area. A guide walks you through the first exhibit sharing the history of the various rooms and points out the original pieces of furniture from the North family. Children, and adults, will be fascinated with the Ballard Dolls. The hats and clothing are a fine example of craftsmanship and styles of the day. The Caldwell Mercantile collection depicts real life characters of the period. The second exhibit is self-paced and tells visitors of the heart wrenching stories the slaves endured during that period. A must visit to learn about both sides of history. Our guide, Brianna, was well informed and made our visit most interesting. Question: Did you find the “Snail Trails & Cat Tracks” table cloth?

The friendly and knowledgable staff can give you an introduction to the history of what was once a private home and a stagecoach tavern. Current exhibits feature African American history and local (much home-woven) textile manufacture.
