Pantego Museum

The Museum is housed in the former Male and Female Academy/Pantego High School building. The original building was built in 1874 by concerned citizens of the county. Their goal was to educate their children. The private Male and Female Academy continued through 1907 when the Beaufort County Board of Education purchased and enlarged it. It then became a public school serving grades 1 through 11. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is owned by the Pantego Museum a non profit 501 (c) 3.  Funding comes directly through donations and fund raisers. Your support to continue this historic work is greatly appreciated.
