The Tuscarora War, 1711-1715
Professor Larry Tise of ECU will present "The Tuscarora War and Its Bold & Bloody Warriors". The war was fought across eastern North Carolina between white settlers and their native allies and the powerful Tuscarora, the dominant tribe of the region. One of the first battle of the conflict took place at Torhunta, a Tuscarora village in what is today Wayne County.
The Wayne County Historical Association is in the process of restoring the 1856 Presbyterian Church located on the corner of Ash and James Streets in downtown Goldsboro. Work to repair the roof has been completed but it is only the first step in re-opening the building to the public.
