Stop 08: Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex

  • Overview

    Through its exhibits, the Museum of the Cape Fear chronicles nearly four centuries of southeastern North Carolina history. An exhibit on Scottish settlers provides the visitor with background and understanding of the Gaelic beginnings in Fayetteville and Cumberland County. As you stroll into the exhibit, bagpipe music begins to play. A couple of bagpipes, along with two claymores, and a reproduction "Round Buckler," provide further examples of Scottish culture in the Cape Fear region. Visitors will also enjoy seeing a mannequin in traditional kilt, wearing tartan representing Clan McNeil. Occasionally, the museum houses shoe buckles that belonged to Flora McDonald. (The shoe buckles are on exhibit at different museums for months at a time. Please call the museum ahead of time for more information about Flora's shoe buckles.)

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