Sparta Museum Project

New River Community Partners
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to help fund the pre-development activities for the Sparta Museum, a structure that would permanently house the “world-class” Kamm Collection of more than 10,000 antique, artist-made and production teapots. The museum, located in Sparta, NC—at the midpoint of the Blue Ridge Parkway—will be the largest single investment ever made in downtown Sparta and a catalyst for revitalization of a town with manufacturing-job losses in excess of 1400 (25% of total jobs in Alleghany county) in the last three years.
