This year will be the first year that the Gaston County Museum will open to the public on the 4th of July and will be kicking off the evening celebrations from 4pm-6pm on the Historic Dallas Court Square with free popcorn and games!


Come hike with us!

The Museum is delighted to be teaming up with the Catawba Lands Conservancy and the Carolina Thread Trail for a two-part series exploring the emergence of the textile mills and civil war history in Gaston County.
