Would you like to learn about Scottish influence in the mountains? Would you like to try some Scottish dances, food, trivia? How about researching your own Scottish heritage and finding your clan’s or district’s tartan? Franklin, North Carolina has the only Scottish Tartans museum dedicated to Highland wear and history in the United States.
I invite you to join the Friends of the Scottish Tartans Museum. The museum serves as an educational resource for all those interested in the continuing tradition of Scottish Highland dress and Scottish heritage in the U.S. Some Friends members attend the Highland games in Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The purpose is to promote the museum and help with family history research. Two members work in the gift shop. Many Friends members participate in community events like Burns Night, Tartan Day, Taste of Scotland and the nights of Winter Wonderland. We also have fundraisers.
