Civil Rights Museum
The International Civil Rights Center & Museum is an archival center, collecting museum and teaching facility devoted to the international struggle for civil and human rights. The Museum celebrates the nonviolent protests of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins that served as a catalyst during the Civil Rights Movement.
The Museum complex includes 30,000 square feet of exhibit space and is located in the historic 1929 F.W. Woolworth building in Greensboro, N.C.The original portion of the lunch counter and stools where the four students sat on Feb. 1, 1960, has never been moved from its original footprint.
Built in the center of Old Jamestown, near the intersection of what were then known as Federal and Union Streets, Richard Mendenhall’s house served as a gathering place for residents and a stopover for travelers. This home exemplifies the community of Quaker trades people and farmers who actively opposed Slavery, promoted education for all, and labored to create a life of peace and simplicity during troubled times.
The complex, with its 1811 house and fine old bank barn, cluster of outbuildings, and a tanning table where Richard Mendenhall carried on his tanner's trade, is on the National Register of Historic Places. The barn houses a restored false-bottomed wagon used to transport slaves during the underground railroad movement.
