Metrolina Region Historic Sites

Transportation Museum Train

Though the area around Charlotte may not be known for its history, our four historic sites in the region prove that's a reputation the Queen City may not deserve.

From gold panning at Reed Gold Mine in Midland to rides aboard steam locomotives at the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer to the weaving and cooking demonstrations at the President James K. Polk Historic Site, our four historic sites in the region around Charlotte provide hands-on, educational and fun programming for kids of all ages.
