More John Coltrane history is at the High Point Museum.

The museum spent $19,588 at a New York City auction for items that belonged to the jazz musician who lived in High Point for years before moving after his graduation from William Penn High School.

The museum purchased the following:

• a fifth-grade history report

• three sheets of music with Coltrane's handwritten musical notation

• a Down Beat music award

The museum plans to display the items for four weeks before finding out the best way to preserve and display them long term.
