Guion Gallery Opens to the Public

Saturday, April 6, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

Guion Gallery's "Treasures from the Attic" will open to the public on Saturday, April 6!

Named in honor of Bess Guion, Tryon Palace’s newest gallery will be dedicated on April 5, 2019, as part of the 60th Anniversary Celebration of Tryon Palace’s reopening. 

The Guion Gallery honors the original collection of decorative arts, and boasts pieces purchased by and donated to Tryon Palace. Tryon Palace reinterpreted the Governor’s Palace and grounds in an attempt to make it more historically accurate to how Governor Tryon may have lived here in 1770. This reinterpretation made many of the decorative arts pieces unusable in the historical setting. In an attempt to display the beautiful and impressive collection spearheaded by Mrs. Maude Moore Latham, theTreasures from the Attic exhibit will remain a permanent exhibit in the Guion Gallery in the North Carolina History Center. Entrance to the Guion Gallery and Treasures from the Atticexhibit is free to the public.
