The Eden Historical Museum is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. It was originally an initiative of the Eden Preservation Society until it gained it's own non-profit status in 2015. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We are staffed completely by volunteers and depend upon your support for our current and future projects!
After two years of fund-raising and temporary exhibits, the museum held its official ribbon cutting on September 19, 2009, at which time about half of their permanent displays were unveiled. When all exhibits are completed, the museum will tell the history of what is now Eden, North Carolina, from Prehistoric times to the consolidation of Leaksville, Spray and Draper in 1967 to form one city, including: The Triassic Era, Saura Indians, William Byrd, the rivers, Leaksville Landing, the Civil War, textile mills (Marshall Field, Fieldcrest, etc), Gov. Luther Hodges, WWI, the Great Depression, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, people, places, events, and much, much more!
Can you spare a few hours a month on Saturdays to help staff the museum? We also need volunteers to help with a wide variety of other duties such as: helping to plan and staff special events, carpentry, public speaking, housekeeping, building maintenance, organizing photographs and acquisitions, guiding tours, helping to create exhibits, historical research, etc. Please call or send an email to let us know how you would like to help!
