Rowan Museum absorbs China Grove Roller Mill; Key swap set for Sunday
CHINA GROVE — Rowan Museum Inc. has announced it is now the owner of the China Grove Roller Mill, located at 308 N. Main St.
A ceremonial key swap, in which the Historical Society of South Rowan will hand over the keys to Rowan Museum Inc., will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday at the historic roller mill.
The public is invited to attend, and refreshments will be provided.
“Being approached to preserve the history of the China Grove Roller Mill for future generations is an honor,” said Aaron Kepley, executive director of Rowan Museum.
“The Rowan Museum is here to assist and preserve the local history and culture of all Rowan County. This has been a very smooth merger of organizations and we can’t wait to get moving. We hope to have the museum open for public tours within the next few months.”
In gaining this historical property, the Rowan Museum has extended its reach into the southern portion of the county.
This will be a fourth property managed by the Rowan Museum, the others being the Utzman-Chambers House in Salisbury, the Old Stone House in Granite Quarry and the 1854 Rowan County Courthouse in Salisbury.
