About The Mitchell County Historical Society
What we do…
Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, the Mitchell County Historical Society is proudly located in the Historic Mitchell County Courthouse in Bakersville, North Carolina.
Our mission as a nonpolitical, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation is to collect, preserve, protect, and publicly display material that is historically significant to Mitchell County. The society also strives to make the citizens of Mitchell County aware of their heritage.
