Alleghany Historical Museum, Sparta – North Carolina Thursdays August 6, 2020

For this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post, I decided to look around Sparta, Alleghany County. There were some places that stood out. I went with Alleghany Historical Museum. I thought it was a good choice for this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post. The location may have some limitations due to COVID-19 pandemic. Call before planning a visit to see what the limitations are. They do have an online ordering site – see below.
