The Caldwell Heritage Museum was opened in 1991 and is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of Caldwell County, North Carolina. The museum is located in Lenoir, conveniently located near Highway 321, Highway 18, and Interstate-40. In town, the exhibit hall is located at 112 Vaiden Street behind the Davenport School.
