Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex

  • Overview

    Hours: Sunday, 1 - 5 p.m.; Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Closed on Monday. Open to the public.

    Nearly 400 years of history is retold at the Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex. The museum's exhibits provide a larger context to the patriotism and revolutionary activity that occurred in southern North Carolina. The story of patriotism in this area, however, is made more interesting by the presence of Scottish Highlanders, who settled this area beginning in the 1730s. They took a loyalty oath prior to immigrating to the colonies, and the American Revolution divided their loyalties between the desire for independence and their status as British subjects who swore allegiance to the king. These divided loyalties were tested at the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge where Scottish patriots met and defeated Scottish Tories. After the Revolution, the State House, in Fayetteville would be the site where North Carolina delegates ratified the U.S. Constitution, making North Carolina the twelfth state to join the Union. A large relief mural of the State House is unique to see.

    A visit through the museum's American Revolution gallery lifts history from the pages of text books and places you in the midst of the events. The museum's exhibit creates a clearer understanding of American Independence in the Cape Fear region.
