The Museum of North Carolina Handicrafts, in the historic Shelton House, stands as a testament to crafters, both Native American and North Carolina heritage artisans. Its treasures include many gems of history as well as contemporary examples of heritage handicrafts, each with a unique story to tell.
Check out our extensive collections in the house and barn. The handiwork speaks to the need for utilitarian implements, the historical necessity of making them from what you have on hand, and the vision to turn them into incredible works of art!
See the beautiful, Charleston-style farmhouse which is surrounded by gardens and the early 20th century barn which houses antique farm equipment. You won’t want to miss this opportunity!
