John Lawson Legacy Days, November 7 &8, 2014, is an event held in Grifton, North Carolina, on Contentnea Creek, celebrating the rich history of the region. It gets its name from John Lawson (1674-1711), a British explorer, writer, naturalist and surveyor, who visited the area and was killed nearby in the village of Catechna by the Tuscarora Indians. Legacy Days celebrates the full range of area history, including the earliest Native Americans, European settlement, colonial times, the American Revolution and the Civil War. 

This year's theme is TO BE DETERMINED and will add regional craftspeople and period re-enactors in costume to give attendees a new experience while keeping our ties to John Lawson and the Tuscarora Native-Americans

There will be a fascinating presentation on local history, colonial and Civil War re-enactors with a cannon-firing. Come to the open house on Friday evening and see the re-enactors in an authentic Civil War camp near the Contentnea Creek.
