Hickory – In celebration of the City of Hickory’s 150th anniversary, Hickory Landmarks Society Executive Director Patrick Daily will present a three-part lecture series highlighting significant times in Hickory’s history. The first series is Hickory Tavern: Origins and History on Saturday, October 3, at 2 p.m. in the Drendel Auditorium on The SALT Block.

The City of Hickory originated with an 18th century log tavern, a hostelry located along the Lincolnton-Morganton Road where stage passengers and travelers by horse could find food, drink, and lodging. This lecture will discuss the city’s early roots as a tavern.

The event will also be live streamed on the Hickory Landmarks Society’s website,  http://hickorylandmarks.org, and Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Hickory-Landmarks-Society-Inc-111587048881745/.
