Celebrating the cultural traditions of the region’s African-American community
For fun music and training videos visit,
WCU’s Mountain Heritage Center has moved across campus! The Center’s exhibit galleries in the HFR Building closed on April 13, 2015. The MHC has now moved its offices and exhibits to Hunter Library, where we are continuing to serve WCU and the community.
Our offices, located on the 2nd floor of Hunter Library, are open M-F, 8 am – 5 pm. Our 1,500 sq. ft. exhibit gallery on the first floor of Hunter Library is open and hosting "Horace Kephart: Revealing an Enigma." We have just opened "When All God's Get Together" on HL Second Floor, a celebration of the lives and music of African-Americans in far western North Carolina.
Our collections remain in the HFR Building, where our artifact preservation and research work continues. Ultimately, the MHC will be the centerpiece of a new WCU Visitors Center. Our main phone number is (828-227-7129) and you can find the latest information about upcoming programs and exhibits, as well as complete contact information here and on Facebook.
