The Henderson Institute Historical Museum is a local history museum located in Henderson, North Carolina. It chronicles the past of the African America community of the Vance County, driven by its roots of once being the only secondary school that was open to Black teens.

The Henderson Institute Historical Museum commemorates and celebrates its roots of being the Henderson Institute. The school was founded in 1887 by the Freedmen?s Mission Board of the United Presbyterian Church. From then on until its integration in 1970, it has been exclusively for African American kids.

Although, the building is still used as a part of an educational complex, some areas are now opened to the public in honor of its heritage. Displays about the old school?s past are available in various forms.
