Tucked away on the second floor of Belhaven’s Old Town Hall is the Belhaven Memorial Museum, a museum dedicated to providing a snapshot of life in the nineteenth and early-twentieth century. The museum holds artifacts of all kinds, from clothing and canned goods to wartime machinery and dolls. The museum began as Mary Eva Blount Way’s private collection and has since grown to include the possessions of others from the area.
The Belhaven Memorial Museum is an eclectic assemblage of items collected by Eva Blount Way, who died in 1962 at age 92. Occupying one floor of the town hall, it includes 30,000 buttons, a whale skull, and photographs of hurricanes.
