North Carolina Rural Heritage Center
The North Carolina Rural Heritage Center is a presentation and celebration of the cultures and heritages that have shaped Scotland County and the Piedmont of North Carolina.
The centerpiece of the Center is the JohnBlue House.
A majestic home built in the late 1800 by Mr. John Blue, the home provides a glimpse of life as the century turned.
Located behind the House is the Heritage Village. This area presents homesteads from the 1800s and complements these structures with commercial endeavors that fueled local rural communities including a cotton gin, a tobacco barn, and a general store.
Across the street you will find two museums:
The Museum of Agriculture and History – which presents an array of inventions and products that often married the industrial revolution and the agricultural commerce of rural North Carolina; And the Indian Museum of the Carolinas which offers exhibits on the life and homes of Native Americans through the centuries.
