"Taken Shelter in Fort Dobbs"

Event Description

In the spring of 1759, the Yadkin Valley was ravaged by fighting as Cherokee warriors spread over the region. Many British settlers fled, while others found shelter within the walls of Fort Dobbs. Though no full-time soldiers were present, the building offered badly needed refuge to civilians.
Historic interpreters representing the settlers of Fourth Creek will offer on-going displays of life at the fort, as well as featured musket firing demonstrations.
