Take a step back into time during this annual living history event. Visitors will experience the fervor of the 1844 election, and the excitement of a presidential candidate’s return home. Families will enjoy mingling with a diverse array of backcountry residents, children’s games and crafts, cooking and musket-firing demonstrations, and a birthday treat. This year’s celebration will also coincide with the opening of a new temporary exhibit: Vote: The History of Voting in North Carolina.
