Who is Kit?

Meet Kit, the young fox who can frequently be found roaming the grounds of Tryon Palace. Kit loves to spend his day having adventures on the lawn, smelling the flowers in the gardens, visiting with the people telling stories of the past, and learning about North Carolina’s early state history at Tryon Palace. With an eye for exploration and a thirst for excitement, Kit always has fun when visiting his favorite historic site.
