Historical Society Open House


The Stokes County Historical Society will host the final summer open house on Sun., Aug. 28 from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Stokes County Museum of Regional History located at 403 Main Street in Danbury. The museum is normally open by appointment only. The museum is the restored circa 1850’s home of the Wilson Fulton Family. Furnished with period furniture and local historical items, new displays and local Native American artifacts are currently on display. Charles Farlow, a past president of the Stokes County Historical Society and a former Boy Scout leader with Cherokee heritage, will be on hand to talk about his large Cherokee display of historically researched and carefully hand-crafted Cherokee reproductions recently donated to the museum. On temporary loan for our summer open house events is a large Steatite vessel, dating to 8,000-2,000 BC and found in Stokes County. Free and open to the public.
