  • Who We Are

    Levine Museum’s mission is to engage a broad-based audience in the exploration and appreciation of the diverse history of the South since the Civil War, with a focus on Charlotte and the surrounding Carolina Piedmont. Through the Museum we collect, preserve, and interpret the materials, sights, sounds, and ideas that illumine and enliven this history. The Museum presents opportunities for life-long learning about this history for the benefit, enjoyment and education of children and adults, and provides historical context for contemporary issues and a community forum for thoughtful discussion.

    Since our founding in 1991, core values have guided what we do and how we do it: Scholarship, Education, Collaboration, Inclusion, and Fiscal Responsibility.

    We believe in and are committed to using history to build community.

    The New South

    The New South means people, places and a period of time — from 1865 to today. Levine Museum of the New South is an interactive history museum that provides the nation with the most comprehensive interpretation of post-Civil War southern society featuring men, women and children, black and white, rich and poor, long-time residents and newcomers who have shaped the South since the Civil War.

    A Time—The New South is the period of time from 1865, following the Civil War, to the present.
    A Place—The New South includes areas of the Southeast U.S. that began to grow and flourish after 1865.
    An Idea—The New South represents new ways of thinking about economic, political and cultural life in the South.
    Reinvention—The New South encompasses the spirit of re-invention. The end of slavery forced the South to reinvent its economy and society.
    People—The New South continuously reinvents itself as newcomers, natives, immigrants, visitors and residents change the composition and direction of the region.
