The Museum at Wrightsville is located in a house built in 1871, the former
residence of John and Mary Redman. The house was given to Historic
Wrightsville, Inc. in 1987 and since that time has served as the home of the
organization which has done much to preserve the rich heritage of the town.
The first floor of the museum contains exhibit rooms housing permanent
exhibits on the history of the town, including information on the different
bridges at Wrightsville, and special rotating exhibits on particular aspects
of local history.
Knowledgeable docents are available to answer any questions concerning the
town or the area. Also in the museum are:
  •  a small gift shop
  •  a library of books relating to aspects of the Civil War
  •  books and information on the Civil War in Wrightsville
  •  information on up-coming events and other special programs sponsored    
    by Historic Wrightsville, such as fund raising events and sale items.
