Rowan Museum and HSF History Class now taking registrations

How can you get up to speed on the people, places and events that shaped Rowan County?
Sign up for the Rowan Museum and Historic Salisbury Foundation’s History Class.
Beginning its sixth season, 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.
The 2014 History Course will take place each Thursday evening for 13 weeks, from Feb. 6 until May 8, 7-8:30 p.m., with Easter week off.
Behind-the-scenes tours of six historic sites and presentations by local experts will leave all participants with a greater knowledge of the area in which we live.
Make your reservation by calling 704-636-0103 or by email to office@historicsalisbury.org.
Newcomers (first year in Rowan County) and active teachers attend free of charge. Members of Historic Salisbury Foundation or Rowan Museum pay $25, non-members $30 each.
