Nestled in what once was known as the ?Oak Grove?, a 19th century grain plantation, is the Alamance County Historical Museum. It was built around the 1740s by the Holt family, originally from Bavaria and settled in the South in the early days of the new colony.

The Alamance County Historical Museum is situated in the plantation?s main house. It is mostly a history museum, focused on chronicling the past through period furnishings and a collection of artifacts from the locale. There are mid 19th century furniture and accessories like porcelain and Tiffany silver as well as portraits made by William Garl Browne. There is also Alemance County pottery, quilts, and military artifacts. Visitors can also find example products of the area?s textile industry, known as the Alemance Plaid.
