Robbinsville, North Carolina
On October 18, 2016, Foundation Forward, Inc. made a presentation to the Graham County Board of Commissioners to propose the installation of a Charters of Freedom setting in their county. The three-part setting would consist of The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and The Bill of Rights.
On February 26, 2019, the official Letter of Intent was signed by our Founder, Vance Patterson and Dale Wiggins, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners. It was confirmed that the site for the setting would be at 21 South Main Street in Robbinsville. This location was selected by the county for its central location in the county, high visibility and foot traffic, and easy access by school children and citizens.
A fundraising campaign began, and contractors were approached to get involved with the project. The funds raised, along with donations of labor and materials, help to offset the costs associated with the construction of this setting, which helps to “pay it forward” and help to install settings in additional counties throughout the United States.
