This exhibit celebrates the rich textile history of Kings Mountain and the surrounding area, following a timeline from the Native American textiles of prehistory, to the textile mills of the 19th and 20th centuries that were instrumental in the development of this region, to the contemporary local textile manufacturers who continue to thrive in the industry through innovations in textile technology and environmentally sustainable practices.  Hands-on activities help children and adults better understand textile technologies and their importance to society – a common thread in Kings Mountain’s culture from prehistory to today.

Common Threads is proudly sponsored by J.E. Herndon Company, Neisler Brothers, Inc., Patrick Yarn Mills, Inc. & Specialty Textiles, Inc. (STI).  Open Tuesday through Saturday 10am – 4pm.
