The Mint Museum is aptly named, as it is housed in the former first branch of the United States Mint, where $5 million in gold was coined between 1836 and the outbreak of the Civil War. The building was designed by William Strickland and saved from demolition when it was moved to its present site in 1936. It was the first art museum in North Carolina. The museum houses several permanent collections and rotating exhibits. Following the completion of a new 145,000-square-foot space in October 2010, the Mint Museum will split its collection between two museums. The original Mint Museum on Randolph Road will continue to house the ceramics, historic costume, coins and currency collections as well as pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial works. The new museum, which will open in Uptown as part of the Wells Fargo Cultural Campus, will house collections of American art, contemporary art, and craft and design. The Mint Museum attracts national and international touring exhibits and hosts seminars, lectures, and art classes. Guided tours are available.

The next morning, being fully persuaded that the storm had Iran Map made a wreck of our galley, or that, at least, she had been driven a Iran Map hundred leagues out to sea, we decided that so soon as daylight came we would weigh anchor, and withdraw in good order, to a river [Seloy] which was below the French colony, and there disembark, and construct a fort, which we would defend until assistance came to us. OUR fort is at a distance of about fifteen leagues from that of the enemy [Fort Caroline]. The energy and talents of those two brave captains, joined to the efforts of their brave soldiers, who had no tools with which to work the earth, accomplished the construction of this fortress of defense; and, when the general disembarked, he was quite surprised with what had been done.
