Hosted By Cheryl and David Correll, of Correll Farms in Cleveland
Saturday, May 7
1175 Woodleaf-Barber Road
(12 minutes from downtown Salisbury)
Join us in learning of the various types of heirloom herbs and vegetables and how they would have been used during the 1860’s when Dr. Josephus Hall and his family lived in the Hall House. Feel free to bring your whole family for children's activities and a farm tour. This is an ideal opportunity to learn about heirloom plants and how you can grow them in your own garden! This special event is free, but each adult is asked to make a $15 donation to the Hall House and Gardens. Donations will be taken during the event at the farm. Everyone will gain experience by potting their own plant to take home. For planning purposes, reservations are strongly encouraged. Please send an email with the name, address, email and phone number of each participant to: events@ historicsalisbury.org to reserve your spot. This is preferred but not required. We just want to be sure to have enough material for everyone! Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase additional plants—an ideal gift for Mother’s Day! Cheryl and David Correll live on their family farm, once a large dairy farm. Currently, the couple and their two children, Josie and Tarlton, raise vegetables and livestock. They are well known vendors at the Salisbury and Davidson Farmers Markets.
Congratulations to all winners of HSF's 2016 Historic Preservation Awards
Join us in saluting the 2016 Preservation Award Winners on May 26th at 6 p.m. at the Salisbury Station. Since 1983, Historic Salisbury Foundation has celebrated local historic preservation successes by presenting Preservation Awards to individuals, companies, and projects demonstrating various areas of excellence in preservation. This event is typically held in May, which is National Preservation Month.
Nominations are accepted from the public throughout the year and reviewed by a committee of preservation leaders in Rowan County. Projects completed within the past three years in Rowan County are eligible to receive an award.
HSF's Preservation Awards are made from bricks salvaged from the 1896 Grimes Mill, a roller mill which was lost to fire in January 2013. We are thrilled to announce the 2016 Preservation Award Winners!
NEW! Mary Cowan Hall Cookbook
Hot off the presses is the newly transcribed cookbook of Mary Cowan Hall and Henrietta Hall McNeely from 1859 to 1888.
The original recipe book was in possession of Mary Francis Smith of Greensboro, NC. She was a friend of Mildred Seaber, the granddaughter of Dr. Josephus Hall.
Mildred gave Mrs. Smith several items once belonging to the Hall Family. After speaking with Hall House docent, Barbara Upright, Mrs. Smith donated this cookbook in 2014. Volunteers led by Carol Rathbun spent hundreds of hours over the past two years transcribing the recipes. See the original cover to the right.
