Help Bring History to Life

The Trail of History is an ambitious project that, when complete, will comprise 21 bronze statues. Ten of these statues are finished, with several others still in the works. They represent the rich history of Mecklenburg County and its people.


Many say that Charlotte has no history, but the Trail of History proves otherwise. We need your support to help us bring this valuable history to our community.


Your donations will support various initiatives related to the Trail of History. These include organizing community events such as the annual Trail of History Festival, providing dynamic programming at each statue, and enabling access to virtual field trips for local students. Additionally, your support will help us create more sculptures that tell the story of the Charlotte region.


Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Together, we can ensure that the history of Mecklenburg County is preserved and celebrated for generations to come.

The Trail of History is a 501(c)(3) organization and your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
