It is small but Gaffney is not a big place either, the history inside was very informative and flowed. Art was interesting local artist.

Great small town museum. Displays do change so you never know what might be on display. You could spend a couple of hours in there easily. They had displays outside that our school got to visit.

this is a smallish museum but it does give a lot of information about Cherokee County. it is located behind the school and you have to turn down the side street to get to it if you are using GPS.
