Tobacco Farm Life Museum, 709 N. Church St., offers a history of North Carolina tobacco farming and the economic changes brought about by the introduction of flue-cured tobacco. Displays include artifacts, tools and equipment used in the curing process.
Exhibits illustrate social, educational and religious customs of the area's early families, and a restored farmstead re-creates rural life during the Great Depression. Video presentations show the history of tobacco and some of the phases involved in its production. Special demonstrations are offered on Saturdays during Stepping into the Past activities.
