Facility:Gaston County Museum
Description:In 1852, Daniel Hoffman built an impressive 44-room hotel on Lot #5 on the southeast corner of the Dallas Court Square. Bricks were made on-site, as were the square-headed nails used in construction of the hotel, which consisted of a basement and an attic, 3 floors of hotel rooms, dining room and family quarters.

Step back in time as you view the Greek Revival architecture and Victorian furnishings. The museum houses two floors of changing exhibits, on history and/or art, the Daniel Stowe Carriage House, featuring the state s largest collection of horse-drawn vehicles, and the permanent Carolinas Textile Exhibit, showing the area s primary commodity from the late 1800 s to mid-1900 s cotton mills and the lives that revolved around them.

Finding a quality museum for free is a rare find. That rare find is the Gaston County Museum of Art and History, a hidden jewel in Dallas, NC. The museum staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The museum offers permanent exhibits, as well as rotating exhibits. Make sure you visit the carriage house to see their collection of carriages, and sleighs. Check their calendar often for the various programs offered for a small fee.
