The Ashe-Covington Building in Wadesboro was given to the Historical Society in June 2000 by Time-Warner Cablevision Co. The small structure was previously owned by Dr. Edmund S. Ashe, who built in around 1890, and then Dr. Jimmy Covington.
Knowing the vital part the medical profession has played in the lives of Ansonians, the Society board decided to establish a medical museum in the building to serve as a lasting tribute to Anson's doctors and nurses.
Many medical artifacts have been donated to the museum and more have been promised.
