Dunn High School Exhibit - Dunn Area History Museum


Dunn High School is now a part of the new Dunn Area History Museum. DHS Friends, Inc.

--the now dissolved Dunn High School Alumni Association--proudly sponsored the Dunn High School exhibit, which represents a sampling of the broad history of Dunn High School. Dunn High was the most prominent high school in the Dunn area from 1926 through 1985. The display offers a visual impression of 60 years of high school evolution. Its history represents changes in culture and style...clothes, hair, dance, music, even slang. The exhibit displays a collection of memorabilia including trophies, uniforms, partially-deflated footballs and basketballs, sweaters and uniforms, commemorative plaques, a rare antique Longcase Master Clock, dozens of photos, and, of course, Dunn High School yearbooks…and even VIDEOS of yearbooks.


While DHS Friends’ charitable mission was to support local schools and award scholarships through alumni funding, the Dunn Area History Museum presence offers a permanent vehicle for fulfilling the second part of The Friends' mission—"to perpetuate the memory and legacy of Dunn High School."


The Dunn Area History Museum is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. It is located at the corner of Broad Street and Wilson Avenue in Dunn.
