Honoring African American heritage, culture and community, the Peacock Museum features exhibits and demonstrations preserving the history of African American people. The museum strives to educate the public on traditions, and create a sense of pride through special events and exhibits. The museum is a showcase of African American artifacts, local black memorabilia, slavery, and family heirlooms. Housed in a building that once served as the home of an ex-slave, the museum strives to preserve African American heritage of the region and provide educational opportunities.
