History of the Harvest

The North Carolina Museum of History
North Carolina Museum of History Saturday, July 22nd noon--4pm Free drop in event

Learn about one of the most historically important crops in North Carolina—corn! Take a tour of our outdoor History of the Harvest exhibit, which traces the development of corn from heirloom plants that were important to Native communities in the state to modern drought-resistant varieties created in a North Carolina lab. Along the way, pick up recipes, watch our artists at work create beautiful dolls, and make your own cornhusk creature to take home.
