The Mount Airy Museum of Regional History is located in a 100-year-old, three storied building in historic downtown Mount Airy. The building contains 30,000 sq. feet. More than 20,000 sq. ft. has been developed into exhibits. While the exhibits focus on the northern back country region of North Carolina and on southwest Virginia the story line could be about any small community in America. Exhibits have been developed in a chronological manner. These things that are unique to the area – The world’s largest open face granite quarry, and the lives of the Siamese Twins and world-acclaimed fiddler, Thoms “Tommy” Jefferson Jarrell are also included.
