Sharing Greater High Point’s history, providing perspective for current issues, and strengthening the sense of community.
The High Point Museum, a division of the High Point Public Library, is a local history museum. The museum features public programs, permanent and changing exhibits detailing the history of greater High Point. Adjacent to the museum is a historical park consisting of the 1786 Haley House (oldest house in High Point on its original location), c. 1801 Hoggatt House, and a c. 1841 blacksmith shop. Costumed interpreters are available on Saturdays to guide visitors through the park and periodically offer demonstrations of eighteenth century crafts and skills.
