Levine Museum of the New South

The heart of this museum lies in an exploration of the people who have changed and shaped the social landscape of the South since the end of the Civil War. The exhibit addresses controversial issues like race relations and immigration, providing a forum for discussion and contemplation. The facility is newly renovated and many of the pieces contain modern multimedia displays and virtual tours that make the learning experience fun for all ages. Be sure to explore the 'Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers' exhibit, one of the permanent collections that focuses on the changing face of Charlotte and the Piedmont region of North Carolina.

Historic Rosedale

Known as “Frew's Folly” for the extravagance of the owner who built it, this plantation house is a beautiful example of the rich gentleman's life of the early 19th Century. Occupied by several rich families and their slaves in succession, the house has many a tale to reveal. Tours of the area promote this heritage and educate folks about the lifestyles of their probable ancestors. Stroll through the beautiful gardens amid the trees, barns and outbuildings, and look at the old wash-house that was once full of suds and chatting women. A myriad of events like tea-parties, fund-raisers and candle-light tours take place here as well.
