AAA Editor Notes

MacCallum More Museum & Gardens is at 603 Hudgins St. The museum houses a collection of Native American-related items, including tools, weapons and a life-size model of a Creek Indian. A replica log cabin depicts the original home of the collection. Changing art displays also are presented, as are exhibits detailing the history of the Thyne Institute, a school for African-Americans that operated in the area 1876-1953, and the Mecklenburg Hotel, famous for its mineral water “cures.” Among the exhibits is a 17th-century bronze depicting a samurai warrior. Brochures describing a self-guiding tour of the arboretum and statuary-dotted botanic gardens are available. Visitors strolling the boxwood- and dogwood-lined paths discover fountains and flower gardens featuring many different cultivars and a variety of friezes. Guided tours are available.
