    Clyde Edgerton, noted novelist, a Guggenheim Fellow and the recipient of the NC Award for Literature, will present a program about the Warren-Haley Cemetery located in Umstead State Park. The cemetery, which is still active, is where many of Edgerton’s ancestors are interred. Edgerton will share intriguing stories about his family and their lives in the area that would become the park. Please join the Friends of the Page-Walker as we welcome this special guest who will stir and entertain us with the passion he feels about his ancestors buried here in Cary.

    Admission to this event is free of charge and open to the public.

    As part of our year-long celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Page-Walker Hotel, the Friends of the Page-Walker are partnering with the Town of Cary to offer trolley tours of historic downtown Cary.

    If you missed our tours in the spring, here's another chance to climb aboard and let our guides share with you the history of our town as you ride through historic neighborhoods and past historic sites and landmarks. You'll see homes that housed former influential members of the community, including civic leaders, merchants, and doctors; teachers and principals of the first public high school in the state, right here in Cary; and the woman who made Cary the “gourd capital of the world!”

    You'll also see historic churches and theaters and old general stores, and visit cemeteries with graves dating back to the 1800s. Did you know Cary has an extensive African American community with a long history? You'll learn about that too. And you'll discover one of our most distinguished residents who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain under President Woodrow Wilson during WWI. At the end of the trolley ride, step inside the Page-Walker Arts & History Center and let our volunteers show you around the building, once an historic railroad hotel. Or take a self-guided tour with our new brochure.

    Join us Sunday, November 4. Tours are 50 minutes long and leave from the Page-Walker Arts & History Center at 119 Ambassador Loop in Cary at 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.

    What a special treat to have Bill Leslie performing in the Main Gallery on St. Patrick’s Day!  Bill recently retired from his news anchor role at WRAL-TV in Raleigh.  Bill is also known as a new age record artist who, along with his World Music band Lorica, performs traditional as well as Celtic fusion music composed by Leslie. Leslie has also composed music featured on albums by Bragh Adair.  This will certainly be a special afternoon for all who attend.
