Mitford Museum Plans for Growth

May 10, 2023

The Mitford Museum is looking to the future.

As the budding nonprofit in Hudson, NC, moves further into its second year of operations, plans are already underway for future growth. Thanks to the foresight of a generous donor, the museum has purchased property at 150 Cedar Valley Road, opposite the museum’s location inside the Hudson Arts Center at 145 Cedar Valley Road.

“As the Town of Hudson continues to grow and develop, we’re excited to have this opportunity to provide another cultural destination for locals and visitors,” said Museum Director Sarah Thomas. “We look forward to developing an arts center for young people, along with a permanent home for our Oral History Library and additional museum exhibitions.”

The site offers exciting opportunities for the museum to develop new programming and projects to fulfill its mission of advancing the common good through literacy, creativity, and community. Additional details regarding specific plans and timelines will be made available as they are developed and as funds are raised to make them possible.

Founded by #1 New York Times bestselling author, Jan Karon, The Mitford Museum narrates the ways in which her hometown of Hudson, NC, helped influence her life and work including the 14 popular Mitford novels. Often called Jan’s ‘book without covers,’ the museum is a place of common ground, where people from varied backgrounds can come together to feel welcomed, cared for, and at home.
