Following is the Mission Statement of the Charlotte Museum of History, as it appears on the Museum website:

The Charlotte Museum of History, an educational organization, captures and shares the stories of the Charlotte region from settlement forward through exhibits and programs. The museum collects, preserves, researches, and interprets regional artifacts, including the oldest surviving house in Mecklenburg County, the 1774 Hezekiah Alexander Homesite.”

The Hezekiah Alexander House is the oldest structure on the eight-acres on which the Museum is located in east Charlotte.
