City of Conover
On September 26th, 2018, Foundation Forward, Inc. made a presentation to Conover City Manager, Donald Duncan which discussed the placement of a Charters of Freedom setting within the city limits. The three-part setting would consist of The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and The Bill of Rights.
On October 1st, 2018, the official Letter of Intent was signed by our Founders, Vance and Mary Jo Patterson and Conover City Manager, Donald E. Duncan. It was confirmed that the site for the setting would be at the proposed site for the new Conover Station Park. This location was selected for its central location in the county, high visibility and foot traffic, and easy access by school children and citizens.
A fundraising campaign began, and a contractor was secured to build the settings. The funds raised, along with donations of labor and materials, help to offset the costs associated with the construction of this setting, which helps to “pay it forward” and help to install settings in additional counties throughout the United States.
