The Museum of the Waxhaws is Union County’s Cultural and History Learning Center
The Museum showcases and demonstrates history and culture to visitors in the context of indoor and outdoor exhibits, artistic performances, historical reenactments, and group tours. The basis of our mission is to teach residents of Union County about our regional history.
Our mission is to provide an authentic and accurate depiction of local history and to continue building the story as history is made for generations to come!
