From August 25 to September 17, 2011 the Museum commemorated the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks through the exhibit Eyewitnesses to 9/11: From Tragedy to Transformation. In addition, the Cherokee Historical & Preservation Society partnered with Gaffney High School for the "Where Were You?" oral history project. In May 2013, the Museum presented the special exhibit Pirates, Privateers, and Buccaneers in celebration of its fifth year anniversary.
The Museum is quickly becoming a popular rentable space having hosted various events including business conferences, wedding receptions, reunions, and more.
Renovations on Phase Two of the building have been completed increasing the amount and quality of rentable spaces thanks to a generous grant from The Timken Foundation.
