A piece of local history for all.. Local curators have created a small, but excellent museum within the confines of historic Salisbury. A must see

One is always treated to a special event whenever they enter the door to this Museum. You are led through a wonderful grouping of what has existed in this wonderful community throughout the past 100 plus years. Great for all ages.

There is not a lot to it but it is clearly worth 30 minutes to an hour of your time. A lot of the cheerwine history is presented. It in the rear of the building to the left of the courthouse.

Cheerwine is a soft drink celebrating a 100 year anniversary. The museum had one of every one of the bottles that the company had used throughout the years. I grew up in Salisbury and Cheerwine is a family favorite.

I have been to this museum many times over the years. It contains many old artifacts from this area. Many things on loan (I think) or museum owned. There is something new every time I visit.
