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