The Danger Cove Historical Museum is located in a building that is itself of historical interest. It was built in 1898 by a pair of brothers so they could operate their respective stores (dry goods and groceries) side by side. After they had a falling-out and lost the building to foreclosure, a rival merchant purchased the building to form a precursor to big box stores, selling just about everything that local residents could want. Unfortunately, it couldn't compete when larger chains moved into nearby towns, and the store closed in 1997. Shortly thereafter, local residents raised the necessary funds to save the building from demolition and establish the Danger Cove Historical Museum, which is dedicated to preserving local history, with a particular emphasis on the Danger Cove Lighthouse, maritime artifacts and pioneer settlements.

Below are photos from our collections celebrating our unique history and Americana, as well as a miniature quilt that Members of the Danger Cove Quilt Guild were challenged to make inspired by the museum's latest acquisition, the Maria Dolores Four-Patch. Pictured is one of the miniatures, which is on display in the museum's gift shop, where a pattern for the 16" square quilt can be purchased.
