Description

Join Scott Huler, author and curator of A Delicious Country, to learn about his two-month journey through the Carolinas in the footsteps of explorer John Lawson. Like Lawson, Huler walked and paddled the entire route and wrote down his observations on the local flora, fauna, and peoples. In addition, they both collected objects along the way. In this talk, Huler will explore his own collection, guide visitors through the exhibit space, and reflect on 300 years of change in the Carolinas.

 

This event is free with museum admission. Pre-registration is preferred, but not required.

The Charlotte Museum of History saves and shares the Charlotte region’s history, connecting the past to current issues and opportunities. We believe a shared understanding of the past can enrich the community’s future, and we work to tell the stories of all parts of our community and all those who have inhabited our area.

 

The museum sits on an eight-acre wooded campus in fast-changing East Charlotte. It’s the site of the oldest surviving house in Mecklenburg County, the Rock House built circa 1774 for the Hezekiah Alexander household. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a designated local landmark, the house is Charlotte’s only remaining structure from the days of the Revolutionary period. Nearby are a relocated barn dating to the era, a reproduction log kitchen, and a reconstructed two-story springhouse. Tours of the site and museum programs highlight how people lived during that era and tell of the many cultures that came together to build Charlotte, including the stories of Black, Indigenous, and immigrant communities.
