Strategy RC6.2: Create a state Regional History Museum in WNC.
A regional history museum in the region would promote the regional identity by educating residents and visitors alike about the historical development of the area. A phased approach that begins as a web portal and/or mobile museum could generate interest and funding partners with the long-term goal of creating a permanent museum.
