Levine Museum of New South | Charlotte NC Travel & Tourism
The official travel resource

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.

New South University

Whether an out-of-town visitor, a native or a newcomer, all are part of the ongoing history and reinvention of the New South. Take a crash course in this fascinating history and earn an honorary degree in “New Southernerness.” Kick off your experience in a classroom setting with a facilitated dialogue and hands-on, object-based lesson where guests get to touch the artifacts.

Food and Farming, Past and Present

At the end of the Civil War, Charlotte and the South were forced to reinvent their entire economy and society. Since then, the city’s never slowed down. In fact, one might say that the New South is almost a century and a half old but as new as tomorrow. Food and farming, a constant in southern history and culture, offers a distinct window into this past and sheds light on changes taking place across the region today.
