Beekeeping 101 with David deHoll
Man has been maintaining honey bee colonies in hives for more than 15,000 years. Beekeepers keep their bees in an apiary or “bee yard” in order to collect the honey and other products the hive produces, including beeswax and pollen to pollinate crops. Learn more about becoming an apiarist (beekeeper) at our program hosted by Anderson beekeeper David deHoll. This program will help you get started and answer some of your questions about bees. The program is free and open to the public – the Museum always welcomes donations!

ACM – New staff members

Curator – Registrar Dustin Norris
Dustin Norris joined our staff on June 29th as our Curator of Collections and Registrar. In this dual role he will direct the exhibition of collections and also be responsible for the management, care and preservation of our ACM Collection of more than 25,000 artifacts.
Dustin’s resume includes planning, designing, researching and writing for exhibition with a solid background in oral history. He was the lead researcher and writer for the Fontana Dam exhibit in Fontana Village, NC and has planned, developed and installed a number of exhibits at Western Carolina University where he received a master’s degree in American History and a bachelor’s degree in History with a Social Sciences Minor. Dustin is a musician in his “off” time and plays a number of instruments – a favorite is the mandolin.
Dustin moved to Anderson from Monroe, NC and is excited to take the lead in preserving Anderson County History. “An artifact in our collection represents a moment in time, a beloved family memory, or a story that may otherwise go untold,” said Dustin. “Preserving the material culture of our County and State is important as we work with and through the community to better serve its people, not only for the sake of our past, but for the sake of a rich and meaningful future.”
Norris succeeds Alison Hinman who retired May 1 after managing the collections and exhibitions endeavors at the ACM since late September 2003.
