Museum at Sunset
This innovative, historical museum features five areas of local history including:  Life in the Sandhills, Native American Life, Life in the Country, Life in the Town and The Railroad that tied it all together. The essence of the Sandhills and life that exists within it become a central theme of the structure. The geology of the Sandhills is depicted in the concrete walls with exposed local aggregates. The large truss on the northeast corner cantilevers 72 feet and mimics the idea of a natural sand blowout. The overall size of the museum is 19,120 square feet and houses a classroom and orientation room with a complete audio/visual system for presentations. The lower floor houses a catering kitchen, banquet room, collection storage and building services.  The Heritage Room located in the Knight Museum and Sandhills Center is an extensive historical and genealogy research library available to the public. Pioneer memorabilia, Native American artifacts and railroad history are some of the highlights of the collection housed here.
