Maxton Museum

Maxton Historical Society  website: .

Located on Graham Street, the Maxton Museum is an example of late 19th century frame architecture. Constructed in the 1880's, the building has housed a number of businesses, including a smithy. In the 1890's it was moved to North Patterson Street and used as the law office of Gilbert B. Patterson until 1922. Beginning in 1937, the building was used as a library and moved to its present location in 1972. It has been the home of the Maxton Historical Society since 1982 and houses collections of educational, social, industrial , and genealogical interest. Of special interest is the collection on the Laurinburg-Maxton Air Force Base.

The Museum is open Sundays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. or by appointment.
