Record #:
The North Carolina Museum of Forestry, located in Whiteville, is a satellite museum of Raleigh's North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. The museum's mission is to showcase the vast forest diversity of the state. Established in 2000, the museum includes samples of native tree species, petrified wood, and remnants of the state's turpentine industry. Currently housed in the old Pioneer Savings and Loan building in Whiteville, work is proceeding in the development of a multi-million dollar, 40,000-square-foot, two-story facility complete with a living forest both indoors and outdoors.
