The Mecklenburg Historical Association Docents invite visitors who are interested in learning about and sharing history to attend their upcoming program on Tuesday, February 5th, in the Fellowship Hall of Sugaw Creek Presbyterian Church, West Sugar Creek Road at North Tryon Street. Refreshments are available at 9:30 a.m. The business meeting will follow at 10:00, with the program beginning at 11:00.
The program will be presented by Ann and Jim Williams, local historians and reenactors, who have conducted extensive research on three generations of the Davidson family, who made their home at Rural Hill in Huntersville. From a vast array of primary family papers, family stories, wills, estate papers, court records, etc. they have produced a unified narrative. The title of the program is “It Ain’t Necessarily So – Rewriting Site History Using Primary Sources.” This study revealed much about antebellum Mecklenburg County, including some surprises. Slides will illustrate the talk.
