On Thursday evening, November 8, 2018, the 15th class of Inductees into the Twin County Hall of Fame will be honored in the new Rocky Mount Event Center at 285 NE Main St, Rocky Mount, NC, 27801.

Twin County Community Pride, Inc. is a tax-exempt North Carolina non-profit corporation formed to preserve and celebrate the history, heritage and accomplishments of the people and institutions of Edgecombe and Nash Counties. Our purpose is to collect, preserve and display photographs, memorabilia and objects that portray the history of this area and the accomplishments of its people.
The Twin County Museum and Hall of Fame is currently located on the first floor of the Rocky Mount Train Station. The space is small and the history and accomplishments of Edgecombe and Nash County residents are great and growing. We have built a virtual museum and invite you to visit us at www.tchof.org. This year we will have a Hall of Fame of all former Inductees in the new Rocky Mount Event Center. We also share traveling displays of our portraits in public places around the twin counties.
We believe, as a major player in the life of our Twin County Community, you or your organization may want to have a significant role in The 15th Twin County Hall of Fame Inductions. Please consider sponsoring this event.
