In it's third month of business the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, North Carolina has attracted national attention with an article in the Washington Post. Published on April 3, by Diane Daniel, the piece highlights the attractions of the new destination.
"The two-level museum, with most information downstairs, is easy to maneuver. Friendly volunteer guides elaborate on displays and make sure that your earbuds, free with a ticket purchase, are properly plugged into the many audio kiosks.
I have to think that Scruggs would be proud of this place (his family remains involved in some decision-making). He was still alive when the planning was in full swing and was pleased that it was set in the old Cleveland County courthouse, built in 1907 in the center of what is now historic Shelby’s attractive town square. A guide told me that Scruggs said that when he was young, the courthouse was the finest building he’d ever seen — and it’s still quite magnificent."
