James K. Polk Homeplace, Mecklenburg County (Charlotte), North CarolinaMonday, June 12, 2006
On our way to Baltimore, we went through Charlotte, so we stopped for a few minutes at the James K. Polk Memorial Site.
The sign above reads:
"James K. Polk
U.S. President, 1845-1849. Born nearby in house no longer standing. Land and reconstructed buildings now State Historic Site."
Above: we were there on Sunday, so we didn't get to go inside the visitor's center, but we did take these pics:
(above) The Mecklenburg Chapter of the DAR erected this monument.
There's much more about President Polk here at the White House site, and here at the Polk home in Columbia, Tennessee.
