EXHIBIT

Bound by Faith: The Bibles of Cleveland County

June 21-October 22, 2022
Tuesday-Saturday/ 10am-4pm

FREE ADMISSION

The Kings Mountain Historical Museum is proud to announce a new exhibit coming this summer. The exhibit was created in conjunction with The Dover Library’s University Archives at Gardner Webb University and The Earl Scruggs Center.

Bound by Faith: The Bibles of Cleveland County offers visitors a look at some of the Bibles that were owned by Cleveland County residents and some of the interesting ways in which they were used in the secular world of the 19th and 20th centuries. This exhibit features several Bibles which include The O. Max Gardner Inaugural Bible, The O.M. Mull Inaugural Bible, a 1648 Field Bible, and many others. In addition to this collection, we are pulling several Bibles, Hymnals, and other items from our own collections to add to the story.

Generous Support for Bound by Faith: The Bibles of Cleveland County provided by The O. Max Gardner Foundation.

Special thanks to the Gardner-Webb Visual Arts Department and The Earl Scruggs Center.
