New day to visit lost town of Lawrenceville is April 27
TROY — A Nature and History Day at the lost town of Lawrenceville will be held 1 p.m.-4 p.m. April 27, a Sunday, on the Uwharrie Trail.
The event was originally scheduled for March 29 but was postponed by weather.
The day is presented by the Greater Uwharrie Conservation Partnership.
Nature activities will include a short hike, starting at the N.C. 24/27 Trailhead west of Troy. Stations along the trail will feature talks and displays about wildlife, native forest ecosystems, prescribed fire and invasive species.
Participants also will visit what once was Lawrenceville and hear about its rediscovery and archaeological finds. Lawrenceville served as the county seat for Montgomery County in the early 1800s, before the seat was moved to its current location in Troy.
