Comments/Letters From Our Visitors
On April 14th, I was able to attend the "Wilkes Heritage Museum". I came to see your "Civil War" display, and got much more than I bargained for.
Your facility is outstanding, inside and out! What a great history you hold for your area. The staff was very friendly and informative. Although I came to see the "Civil War" display, it took over two hours to get to that room.
A group of us come to Wilkes County late every Steptember for a "Horseshoe Tournament" & trip to the "Hometown Opry". You will be on our list this year.
Thanks for your hardwork at the "Wilkes Heritage Museum".
