The Museum of the Waxhaws
Waxhaw / Union County
This regional history museum is North Carolina's memorial to President Andrew Jackson, who was born in the Waxhaws in 1767. The museum also serves as a memorial to the Waxhaw Indians, the original inhabitants of the county, and the Scots-Irish, who settled this region in the mid-1700s. A self-guided tour of the museum includes a 12-minute film on the history of the area, permanent exhibitions, and a temporary exhibition room with changing displays. Monuments, artifacts, historic buildings and the Andrew Jackson Secret Log House and Herb Garden are located outside. Activities include living history events, workshops for children, Victorian program, a Colonial Herb Day and Plant sale in April and the famous Krazy Daze of Kudzu Festival in August. This is a free event. Since we can't get rid of Kudzu, come see what you can do with it--jelly, baskets, windsocks, kudzu sno kones, fried kudzo leaves, papermaking and lot more.This is a free event.
