Members of the Mebane Historical Society are pleased to announce the reopening of the Mebane Historical Museum in its newly-renovated facility. Our first exhibit features selected photos and artifacts, primarily from the 1930s and 40s, which tell the story of Mebane's early prosperity and growth. Included are works by Farm Security Administration photographers Dorothea Lange and Marion Post Wolcott. Mebane train crossing mural

From the coming of the train that put Mebane on the map to the industries that were the mainstays of the town's livelihood and growth, Sharecroppers the exhibit highlights businesses including White Furniture and Kingsdown, entertainment such as the Mebane Theatre and Teenage Club, and special events like the County Fair and Tobacco Festival ... all of which have made Mebane, NC "The Biggest Little Town on Earth".
