The Hall of History of North Carolina was first
established by Fred A. Olds, as the director, in the
west room of the State Museum, December 15, 1902.
The installation of objects began that day. Mr. Olds?
began the collection twenty years before. Knowing
this fact, Governor Alfred M. Scales in 1885 wrote a
letter specially commending this work, saying that he
hoped it would bring about the keeping of North Caro-
lina relics in the State and prevent their dispersion
in other parts of the country.
The State Department of Agriculture provided a
room for the historical collection, and the title "Hall
of History" was given it by the director. The result
of providing such a place was information as to the
location of great numbers of objects. Visits were made
to about fifty counties in a search for others. In ten
years the hall was full, thousands of objects having
been gathered, some coming from other States and all
having historical value and forming a part of a con^
nected story. Photographs were taken and used in
illustrating the history of North Carolina. Special
studies were made of the life of the Cherokee and
Croatan Indians. Pictures were made of many his-
toric buildings and scenes. Many valuable gifts were
made and a generous spirit was shown by owners of
relics in giving or lending these or allowing photo-
graphs or sketches to be made of them.
The Hall of History remained in the Agricultural
Building until 1914, when it was moved to its present
quarters in the State Administration Building. This
building is a fireproof structure erected at a cost of
$250,000 in accordance with the provisions of chapter
G6. Public La\YS of North Carolina, 1911, for the pur-
pose of housing the State's libraries, archives, histori-
cal collections and relics. On the 18th of February,
1914, the removal of objects from the old Hall of His-
tory was begun. Every object was carefully pre-
pared for transportation and not one was lost, the
labels being attached to each, so as to avoid any con-
fusion. The work of installation in the new hall
began February 20th and was pressed day and night
until it was tinished in the west hall March 12th.
The work progressed so rapidly that this hall was
opened to the public March 14th.
The portraits and other pictures in the old State
Library were turned over to the director of the Hall
of History upon the removal of the library to the new
building. It was found that many of these were not
suitable for use in the historical collection, so a study
was made as to the proper place for all such pictures,
which were duly distributed in the Supreme Court
section of the building, the Confederate Soldiers'
Home and the Agricultural and Mechanical College.
With these went some of the pictures from the old
Hall of History which were the private property of
the director, a number of the latter being placed in
the Raleigh High School auditorium and class-rooms.
On the 17th of March a conference was held with
the Attorney-General as to the legality and advisa-
bility of opening the Hall of History to the public on
Sunday afternoons. He gave his hearty approval to
the plan, and so did Governor Craig, the head of the
State board of public buildings and grounds, who
commended the idea.
The Hall of History was opened on the afternoon
of Sunday. March 22d, it being decided that it should
be opened each Sunday between the hours of 3 and 5
o'clock. The fact that it would be opened was an-
nounced in the newspapers and large cards were
placed on the outer doors of the building. This was
the first public institution in North Carolina opened to
the public on Sunday, and among the visitors the
first day were, a number who said they had not hereto-
fore been able to see the collection because of the
steady work of the week days. They expressed their
pleasure at being participants in such an event.
On the 30th of March the compilation of a cata-
logue of all the objects in the west Hall of History
was completed. The announcement was made that
lectures on the historical collection would be delivered
at any time desired, in the afternoons or evenings,
and various organizations have taken advantage of
this opportunity. History classes from the several
colleges and schools in the city have also paid such
visits and taken notes of the lectures delivered by
In 1912 a visit was made to Murphy by the director
of the Hall of History, particularly to see the collec-
tion of Indian relics, the property of Dr. S. C. Heigli-
way. On the 2d of May. 1914. correspondence was
begun with him in regard to the placing of this col-
lection in the Hall of History, which has resulted in
his agreeing to bring the collection to Raleigh and
personally install it in the Hall.
The collection in the Hall of History is rich in ob-
jects illustrating the War Between the States, notably
flags and uniforms, more than 40 of the North Caro-
lina regiments being represented by their flags, and
the uniforms being those of officers of every rank
from lieutenant-general and of privates.
Correspondence has been carried on with a view to
bringing in every flag carried by North Carolina Con-
federate troops. Two of these flags have in past
years been placed in the collection at Richmond. The
opening of the old Hall of History twelve years ago
stopped the sending of objects of this character out-
side of the State. As the war recedes there is greater
and greater loss of such objects if kept in private
hands or in the custody of minor organizations, and
hence the appeal has been made for the placing of
them in the secure quarters offered by the Hall of
History, where danger of fire is eliminated, where
moth and rust do not corrupt and where thieves do
not break through and steal.
