The Rankin Museum has three main areas of interest which include Natural History, Local History, and Native American culture spread throughout the 4,900 square foot facility. The museum was founded based on the lifetime collections of Dr. Pressley R. Rankin, Jr., MD. of Ellerbe and is named in his honor.
