For the third year (2016, 2017 and 2018) we awarded a small discretionary grant to the Rankin Museum. It was truly a pleasure to conduct a site visit there in 2017 and view exhibits on Natural History, American Heritage, and Native American Culture. The Rankin Museum is located in Ellerbe, North Carolina, and serves as a very educational and fun site in a rural part of North Carolina. Since the Museum was founded "based on the lifetime collections of Dr. Pressley R. Rankin, Jr., MD. of Ellerbe" the displays take you to cultures and animals far beyond the borders of North Carolina, while helping you know more about 'your own backyard'. We hope to continue our work with the museum and urge you to visit if you are in the area!
