Mint Hill Historical Society
A 'For Sale' sign hammered into the front lawn of the old doctor's building was all the motivation needed to begin the Mint Hill Historical Society. Twenty-one citizens signed the charter in 1985 with the purpose of preserving the history of the area. The Mint Hill Country Doctor's Museum was the first restoration project in the Carl J. McEwen Historic Village. Later the Ira V. Ferguson Country Store moved on site, then the Ashcraft Schoolhouse, meat curing building, and additional outbuildings, all coming together to create a glimpse of life, 100 years ago.
