The Mount Holly Historical Museum is the official home of the city of Mount Holly archives and features rotating exhibits as well as a research library with online access to genealogical websites and back issues of the Mount Holly News from 1945-2005.The Mount Holly Historical Society began as a discussion at the Mount Holly Book Club, a group with a 50+ year history, and a desire to bring together those who are interested in preserving Mount Holly's past. Thanks to their initial efforts and the help of many other people in and around Mount Holly, the MHHS became a reality on August 6, 2010.
Initially, a meeting was held with representatives of the City of Mount Holly, and with their encouragement for the Society to become caretakers of the City's archives, the MHHS was formed.
Since then our membership has grown to 100+ members and many friends who want to learn more about our local history and to help us begin "Understanding our Past, Today!"
Monthly meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday at our headquarters located in the former City Hall building at 131 S. Main Street, Mt. Holly, NC 28120. Meetings are free and open MHHS members, guests, and to the public. Typical meeting format begins with a short business session and announcements followed by an interesting historical program and light refreshments and fellowship. Historical exhibits are on display before and after the meeting for meeting attendees to enjoy.
The MHHS is also open for visitors every Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM, by appointment, and during downtown Mount Holly events. We welcome your visit!
