SALISBURY — On Tuesday, May 4, the Rowan Museum will host a History Club meeting at 7 p.m. in the front yard of the Old Stone House located at 770 Old Stone House Road in Salisbury. Dr. Gary Freeze will speak on the importance of Rowan County’s contributions to the Revolution, especially during the winter of 1781 when both armies passed through the county and Salisbury. This is the first History Club program in over a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic and will be held outdoors to promote social distancing and safety. All participants are asked to bring a yard chair or blanket to listen to the 45-minute presentation.

The museum sponsors various programs to educate the community of our local history.
