When I first moved to Mooresville/Lake Norman, I was almost immediately drawn to the historic side of town. Before long I discovered that there was an effort getting underway to perserve the wonderful history of Mooresville.
As a founding member of The Mooresville Museum , I am thrilled to see the progress the group has made towards preserving Mooresville’s history for future generations. We now have a building, the 1927 Charles Mack Store! The museum volunteers are working hard to get the building ready to occupy. Over the past several years they have been collecting items for the museum as well as conducting numerous oral histories from our older residents in order to capture our rich history before it is too late.
Last year we published the first Historic Mooresville Calendar which was a great success and helped to raise some of the much needed funds to help us complete the work on our new location. The 2008 calendar, in which I was again able to sponsor the month of April, will be available to purchase starting October 28th at various locations in downtown Mooresville and on the museum website for $15. But, you may also purchase them at the Historic Mooresville Tour of Homes on October 19th and 20th. Or, contact me and it would be my pleasure to send you one!
“The Mooresville Museum is a nonprofit, local organization dedicated to the preservation of regional history and public interests. It is a grassroots endeavor that combines personal, public and private collaboration for the benefit of providing the public with a tangible repository of items and artifacts of local significance. Public education is a major focus of the efforts of the Mooresville Museum. We are a new venture, currently working to obtaining momentum towards a permanent home for the past. Our collections are currently in protective storage, waiting for their new home!”
Quarterly meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of March, June, September and December at 7:00p.m. at the Mooresville Public Library. All are welcome!
