Historian will tell story of E.B.C. Hambley at OctoberTour luncheon

SALISBURY — Local historian Susan Sides will speak on the life and death of E.B.C. Hambley at the annual OctoberTour luncheon Oct. 13 at Salisbury Station.

Sides’ talk is titled “Money, Mining and Power: The Successful Life and Tragic Death of E.B.C. Hambley.”

The luncheon, separate from other tour activities, is scheduled at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 13. The cost is $45.

The price includes a private tour of the Hambley-Wallace House after the luncheon. Trolleys will be provided between the depot and the mansion on South Fulton Street for those who do not want to drive.

Pastries and prosecco will be served at Salisbury Station and the Hambley-Wallace House.

Several descendants of E.B.C. Hambley will attend the luncheon, including grandson Coleman Hambley and great-grandson Richard Hambley, both of Charlotte. Great-grandchildren Charles Martin and Charlotte Hambley Davis also will be there.

Martin and his wife, Laura, recently gave the Historic Salisbury Foundation a tinted photographic portrait of  E.B.C. Hambley. Hambley’s namesake and grandson, E.B.C. “Barry” Hambley II, lives in Charlotte, but he will not attend.

The Hambley-Wallace House is a site on Historic Salisbury Foundation’s OctoberTour this year. The tour of homes and historic sites will be Oct. 14-15.

Hambley was heavily connected to local mining and the start of the Whitney Dam Project.

Luncheon tickets are available at www.octobertour.com or at the foundation office, 704-636-0103 or 215 Depot St.
