In the 1920s, Cleveland County experienced an economic boom and bust, the heyday of the textile mills, the birth of the political engine known as the Shelby Dynasty, and improved education, healthcare, technology, and transportation systems. This area also saw violent disputes over labor rights and the racial inequity of the Jim Crow system in that decade. Visitors will be able to see the dramatic social, economic, and political changes reflected in the clothing, the music, the dances, the slang, and the products of the era.
