On Thursday, November 30, the Polk County Historical Museum is going to be open for citizens young and old to see what the local museum has to offer. The Night at the Museum event will feature characters from the past walking around the facility in period clothing during the night. The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the museum.  

“We are looking forward to sponsoring our Night At The Museum event again this year,” said Pat McCool, President of the Historical Association. “In the past, we heard from people that they often can not attend our daytime programs because they work, so we are offering this nighttime activity.”

Plans are still being formalized but many reenactors will be on hand, including the volunteers of the Overmountain Men, for the nighttime museum opening. The public is encouraged to attend this free event.
