In the 1920’s Cleveland County experienced an economic boom and bust. It was the heyday of the textile mills, the birth of the political engine known as the Shelby Dynasty, and the improvement of education, healthcare, technology and transportation. The area also suffered sometimes violent disputes over labor rights and racial inequities. Visitors to the museum will be able to see the dramatic social, economic, and political changes reflected in the clothing, music, dances, slang and products of this era.
