Journey Stories Exhibit Opens in Burgaw

Journey Stories, a Museum on Main Street (MoMS) exhibition presented by the North Carolina Humanities Council, the Smithsonian Institution, and rural communities statewide, began a year-long tour throughout North Carolina on Saturday June 23, 2012 at the Pender County Public Library in Burgaw.

A performance by the Wilmington Police Drum and Bagpipe Band, a ribbon-cutting, and appearances from state and local officials were highlights of the event at the library. Attendees then proceeded through the streets of Burgaw to the Historic Burgaw Train Depot for a reception featuring Logie Meachum, a storyteller-musician. The library is hosting a multitude of other events throughout the six-week run of the exhibit. You can find out more about those events on their website.
