Cherryville Historical Museum

Exhibits that follow the history of Cherryville from the early 1800's until today. One of the interesting exhibits is the painting of a bull! The American Tobacco Company used the bull to advertise their Bull Durham brand tobacco. Painted on thousands of buildings in the United States and Europe, there are only four known paintings existing today on brick buildings. The bull was painted in 1910 and was covered with plaster for 80 years but reappeared in 1991 when the plaster was removed.  No admission fee.
