Open house this weekend at Trading Ford Monument Park

The Trading Ford Historic District Preservation Association invites the public to an open house at the Trading Ford Road and Monument Park this coming Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. both days.
The Trading Ford Monument was erected in 1929 by citizens of Davidson County and the N.C. Historical Commission on land donated by Tallassee Power Company (forerunner of Alcoa Power Generating) to commemorate the Trading Ford and Greene’s providential crossing of the Yadkin River during the Revolutionary War. The property also encompasses a segment of the old Trading Ford Road.
The monument was restored in 2009 by the Churchland Lions Club and the Trading Ford Historic District Preservation Association.
Historian Ann Brownlee will be on hand during the open house to talk with visitors about the monument and historic events in the Trading Ford area. Free lemonade will be provided.
Directions (NCDOT has altered the local roads in the vicinity of the monument and online maps do not yet reflect that): From Salisbury/Spencer (14 minutes): Take U.S. Highways 29N/70E toward the Yadkin River. After crossing the river, continue straight on the Wilcox Way .7 miles (past the Hilltop Living Center). Turn left on Sowers Road. Go 400 feet to the first intersection. Turn right on the Trading Ford Way (formerly Old Salisbury Road). Go 200 feet. The Trading Ford Monument is on the right.
