Historic Resources and Museum Program Collection
Since its creation in 2012, the Historic Resources and Museum Program (HRM Program) has the express purpose of protecting and promoting identified museum and historical resource facilities, programs, and assets within the City of Raleigh.
In addition to supervising nine historic properties, the HRM Program manages more than 20,000 decorative art objects pertaining to local history and material culture. The collection includes but is not limited to furniture, ceramics, silver, fine art, photographs, archives, amusements, glass, and textiles dating from the 17th century to the present day.
Many of the objects furnish more than 25 rooms, galleries, or spaces in and around our historic sites. The HRMP aims to research and present the most authentic settings, exhibits, and programs possible, from the wealthy land owner, to the African American doctor, to the amusements that have been enjoyed by generations.
Our online database allows for previewing many of our objects before visiting any of our sites.
