Voices From The Past is a living history event where docents from The Mecklenburg Historical Association wear period costumes while performing monologues that tell the stories of our founding fathers, civic leaders, pioneering women, and some of the other colorful characters of Charlotte’s rich cultural history.
Guests who join us at The Duke Mansion on February 24th will be taken back in time to the Gold Rush of the 1800’s as well as to Charlotte’s Reconstruction Era of the early 1900s with special visits from:
William Houser (1842-1912) – an African-American builder of many of our area’s most prominent buildings
William Strange (1804-1867) – a British gentleman who was assigned to be the first Clerk for the Mint
Dr. Annie Alexander (1864-1929) – the first female physician in both Charlotte and North Carolina
Isabella Wyche (1871-1906) – a 20-year educator who became the first African-American female principal in Charlotte at the Myers Street Grade School for African-American Children
