Wagons, Wheels and Wings

The Master Mechanic's Office, built in 1911, once housed the head of operations for Spencer Shops, but today the Wagons, Wheels, and Wings exhibit hall and the Gift Station fill the historic structure.
Displays often trace the history of all forms of transportation in the state.  Before, the building has housed such varied items as a including a Conestoga Wagon, a hot air balloon basket, and an amphibious plane built by a North Carolinian in his backyard!
Some of those items remain, but Wagon's Wheels and Wings is also used to house temporary and traveling exhibits.  Artwork, Civil War History and more may be found there.
