Curated by the Surry Arts Council, this is the official exhibit of the world-famous conjoined twins, Chang and Eng Bunker. The twins actually moved to Mount Airy in 1845 in search of more fruitful farmlands and better education opportunities for their children. Many of their descendants still call the region home.
The exhibit explores their early lives in Mekong, Siam, up to their latter years in North Carolina. Pictures, articles, personal belongings, and informative binders from their descendants’ annual reunions help bring Chang and Eng’s life to light.
Their graves are just seven minutes away from the Surry Arts Council.
