Taken Shelter in Fort Dobbs

In the spring of 1759, the Yadkin and Catawba River valleys were ravaged by fighting as parties of Cherokee took revenge for the murder of their loved ones by Virginians.
Many settlers fled, while others found shelter within the walls of Fort Dobbs. Though no full-time soldiers were present, the building still offered refuge.
This event will illustrate life at the fort as it was taken over by the civilians of the Fourth Creek Settlement.

10am-4pm Saturday. $2 admission. (Children under 5 free.)
