Richard Gwyn Museum

Saturday Hours: By Appointment

Richard Gwyn Museum

Museum honors Elkin's founder, Richard Gwyn, and is located in the building he built in 1850 to serve as Elkin's first school/church, thus eliminating the need for residents to cross the river to Jonesville for such activities. It is the oldest remaining building in Surry County to have been used as either a church or school. Items on display include farm tools, domestic artifacts, textiles, weaving loom, photographs and documents. Located beside the Foothills Arts Council.
