This week’s Rotary of Marion speaker was Terrell Finley from the Mountain Gateway Museum. Terrell explained how the museum is the westernmost branch of the NC Museum of History family. As a part of the NC Department of Cultural resources, Mountain Gateway Museum is dedicated to bringing life to the wonderful history of our Old North State. But this dedication may be in jeopardy as state funding for this museum is being eliminated.
