More Info on the Belhaven Memorial Museum

The Belhaven Memorial Museum is located in the Belhaven City Hall, which has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Museum began as a private collection by Mrs. Eva Blount Way around the turn of the century. What began as a collection of buttons, grew to include dressed fleas, old coins, shells, early American kitchenware, coffee mills, furniture, old farming tools, Civil War guns, World War I helmets, boots, etc. It's like browsing in grandmother's attic. Open daily except Wednesday, from 1:00 to 5:00 PM, and other times by appointment. Call 919-943-2242, 943-3055 or 943-6817. Closed on major holidays. (Tri-County Telephone)
