Tryon Palace’s monthly Lunch and Learn lecture series returns to the North Carolina History Center Friday, Aug. 19, at noon and will cover the lives of the Royal Governor Josiah Martin and his family.
Martin was the fifth and final royal governor, and called the Palace home for several years before fleeing at the start of the American Revolution. Tryon Palace Living History Programs Coordinator Matt Arthur will explore Governor Martin’s family, the troubles he faced as governor and what his life was like after leaving the Palace.
Tickets for each event are $6 per person and free for Tryon Palace Foundation members. Each Lunch and Learn will begin at noon and guests will meet in Mattocks Hall inside the North Carolina History Center. Visitors must bring their own lunch, no food or refreshments provided.
