President James K. Polk North Carolina State Historic Site pays tribute to our 11th president and presents living history that brings the early 19th century to life. It’s always free to visit.
The historic site presents many events, and most of them are free to attend.
Here’s what’s coming up:
Remembering the Presidents: A Special Presidents Day Event
Saturday, February 17th
10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
During the half century that the President James K. Polk State Historic Site has been in existence, our national culture has evolved in striking ways and so too has our interpretation of the past. How do our evolving judgements of historical figures like Presidents James K. Polk and Andrew Jackson impact the ways in which we memorialize such figures?
Join the staff of both the Andrew Jackson State Park and the President James K. Polk State Historic Site as they discuss the memorialization of Presidents Polk and Jackson throughout history. Staff speakers will begin presentations at both 10:00 am and 11:00 am.
