Scott Family

Since the early 18th century, the Scott family has played a major role in leadership throughout Central Carolina. Their accomplishments have been showcased in The Scott Family Collection which focuses on the five major areas of their influence: Agribusiness, Education, Medicine, Public Service and Religion. You are invited to explore this information and learn more about a unique family who has contributed so significantly to Alamance County, this region and our state.


In this centennial year of celebrating women's suffrage, we are focusing on Elizabeth Scott Carrington and Jessie Rae Scott for our upcoming exhibit: More than a Farmers Daughter and Politicians Wife.

Thank you for your understanding!
