The Catawba Museum at Union Chapel opened June 16, 2018. It is located at 5258 E. Porter Street only a few blocks from the Miller Ferry Terminal.
The facilities are more than just a home for yellowed pages and dog-eared photographs. They create a welcoming environment for blending past and present as harbingers of the future. Our goal is providing visitors with historical insights that can prepare them for the obstacles and opportunities of life.
The Museum is open from mid-May to mid-October. Operating hours are typically 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m
CIHS is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. Some Board members are retired business leaders. Others contribute their efforts in addition to working full time. All are public-spirited women and men who value the lessons of history and cherish Catawba Island.
We focus on activities and events that made living and working here special.
Nothing stays the same. But looking back can often give us a peek at tomorrow. Our mission is utilizing local history as a medium to educate, inspire and prepare for the future.
