Oakboro Regional is housed in the circa 1935 restored Drye’s Furniture store building with original tin ceiling, plastered walls, 8-foot plate glass windows and glass front door used as an entry into gift shop. A collection of more than 1000 photos, numerous artifacts and rotating exhibits tell the story of the small town that began with one man’s ingenuity. He convinced the railroad to come through the community of 5 Roads with the promise of a right-away. He built Furr City, the railroad came through and it was renamed Oakboro. Artifacts explore another time when cotton was king, vast rolling farmland was rich in timber, and Indians lived peacefully on Rocky River.
