The Exploring Joara Foundation is hosting a Fall Social and Annual Meeting on Saturday, October 25th at the Old Burke County Courthouse. The social starts at 4:00 pm and continues until 4:45 pm when we will be giving an update on our outreach programming in the last year before Dr. David Moore of Warren Wilson College gives an exciting presentation on the upcoming 450th anniversary of St. Augustine, Santa Elena, and Juan Pardo’s mission in to the interior of what is now the United States. The presentation will conclude by 6:00 pm and we hope visitors will enjoy beautiful downtown Morganton. If you are available to help or would like to make a donation to the social please contact EJF Executive Director Marie Palacios at ED@ExploringJoara.org to learn how you can help. We look forward to seeing you there!

“It is a story of great scholarship, archaeology at its
best, hot dirty physical work and luck.”
