This Saturday, October 22, 2022, at 11:00 AM in the Historic Burke County Courthouse, HBF and the Main Street Program will co-host a cake cutting in honor of Morganton's 238th birthday and Daniel Morgan Day. Mayor Ronnie Thompson will welcome guests including representatives of DAR and SAR. Comments include the NC Legislature establishing the city on October 22, 1784, how it came to be named for Revolutionary War hero General Daniel Morgan, and the establishment of Daniel Morgan Day in 2021 by Morganton City Council. The event will be casual and brief. 

We hope you will be able to join us!

Thank you.
