It was the vision of founding patron Frank Borden Hanes, Sr., to create a place that unites our community through a deeper understanding of history and therefore each other, where all people, curious about the experiences of others, can connect and belong, so that we may fulfill our potential as one city, reaching confidently toward its future while rooted proudly in its past.
226 S. Liberty Street,
Winston-Salem, NC 27101
We’ve been sharing the stories and experiences of our city through exhibits, public programs, and oral histories. We've explored Winston-Salem at work and play, at school and in the street, in moments of crisis and celebration, and through the lenses of its neighborhoods, its social diversity, and its ongoing evolution.
