Charlotte Museum of History: An Afternoon on the Grounds

September 11, 2020

The Charlotte Museum of History is opening its grounds to the public on Saturday, September 19 for a self-guided tour. This is a great chance to get out of the house and view the Hezekiah Alexander House, which is located on the Museum grounds.  


For one day only! On September 19, the Museum will open our 8-acre site for a self-guided, outdoor experience of Charlotte’s oldest home site. Guests can explore the Museum’s park-like setting, walk through the garden, and view the historic buildings. Tickets are discounted to just $10 per vehicle and include a digital guidebook that tells the story of the people who lived and worked at the Rock House and includes videos and resources to dig deeper into Charlotte’s past. To support social distancing, tickets are limited.


Visitors over the age of 5 are required to wear a face covering when they may be within six feet of any person not in their group, including Museum staff. Visitors ages 2-5 are highly encouraged to wear a face covering. You can read our full mask policy here:


The Museum building as well as the historic buildings will not be open. No restrooms are available for visitors, so please plan accordingly.
