This course provides a factual, well-rounded and entertaining romp through the history of Rowan County and Salisbury. Participants will develop strong personal contacts as well as reference guides to encourage and enable further casual reading or serious research. The class series also makes a great gift for that person who has an interest in history and gift certificates are available.

2019 Year End Request - Painting the Hall House
Last year, as I hope you remember, our year end appeal supported the effort to get gaslights back on Bank Street. Though this endeavor has proven to be a long process, we are in the final stages of getting those gaslights made and installed. It was with your help that the gaslights that once illuminated the streets could be brought back to shed light on the Hall House.
This year, we are once again focusing on the Hall House, as the 200th anniversary of the construction of the house is only months away. 2020 will be an important year— we will take the first weekend in May to celebrate the Hall House with a variety of events. We will also once again be displaying the Hall House for our 45th annual OctoberTour.
