Across Cultural Resources

Welcome to the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources

Whether you’re looking to experience a symphony performance, attend an art show, visit a museum exhibit, find a fun family event or a step back to the Civil War at a historic site, you’re at the right place! If you’re interested in discovering your family’s genealogy, exploring North Carolina history or learning how you can preserve your family treasures or local government records, we can help you too! In fact, we do a lot more.

Cultural Resources is all about what’s happening today in the arts and music, but also about what’s happened in the past to get us here. We’re home to 27 historic sites, seven history museums, two art museums, the nation’s first state-supported Symphony Orchestra, the State Archives, the State Library and the N.C. Arts Council.

Led by Secretary Susan Kluttz, our mission to enrich lives and communities creates opportunities to experience excellence in the arts, history and libraries in North Carolina that will spark creativity, stimulate learning, preserve the state’s history and promote the creative economy. Our organization was the first in the nation to include all state agencies for arts and culture under one umbrella.

This site is your jumping off point to discover all we have to offer. Welcome.

There aren’t many places in North Carolina—or the country, even—where you can see the power of archaeology more than at Town Creek Indian Mound in Montgomery County. Archaeologists led by UNC’s Dr. Joffre Coe began working on the site in the late 1930s, and it’s through Coe’s lifelong commitment to the area and to Native […]
