Coronavirus Update: Tours and Visitation Suspended

Update: Tours and Visitation Suspended

Effective March 13, 2020, the Joel Lane Museum House is regretfully cancelling tours and closing the Museum Store to visitors, as a response to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. The nature of our historic buildings makes it difficult to reliably maintain the recommended levels of personal space among guests. The safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff remains our top priority.

The JLMH office will remain active administratively, so please feel free to contact us at 919-833-3431.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and will post updates on Facebook as well as We look forward to announcing our re-opening as soon as safely possible, and to continuing our mission to share the vital history of this place and our 18th-century roots. In the meantime, we wish everyone good health.

With a bittersweet elbow-bump,

Lanie Hubbard,
Director, Joel Lane Museum House

What visitors say

Than you so much for the exciting presentation. The students really enjoyed all the props you brought in. I hope to have you both come back next year and show my new group of students everything you shared today!
