History of MacCallum More Museum

                

       

 

    The museum, opened in April 1996, houses a permanent exhibit of Indian artifacts collected locally by Mr. Arthur Robertson of Chase City. Tools and weapons dating from 9500 BC to 1600 AD, give a clear picture of the lifestyles and cultures of the seven periods of Native Americans. One display illustrates the evolution of spear and arrow points, while a life size replica of Mr. Robertson's log cabin exemplifies the vastness and wide variety of his collection. A full-sized model of a Creek Indian demonstrates the use of an AtlAtl in the throwing of  a spear. The museum also contains revolving art displays of varied mediums.  An exhibit on the historic Mecklenburg Hotel is planned for the future.
