Graham County, NC
On November 2nd, 2018, Foundation Forward, Inc. made a presentation to the County Commissioners in Graham County, NC. The Board took the matter into consideration and voted to accept the Charters of Freedom setting. The setting would consist of The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and The Bill of Rights.
On February 26th, 2019, the official Letter of Intent was signed by our Founder, Vance Patterson and Graham County Chairman, Dale Wiggins. It was confirmed that the site for the setting would be adjacent to the Graham County Dept of Public Health building, located at 21 South Main Street in Robbinsville. This location was selected for its central location in the county, high visibility and foot traffic, and easy access by school children and citizens.
Construction began in late-2020 and is set for completion in Spring of 2021. A dedication ceremony will be scheduled in the near future.
