Join us on June 25, at 12:00 for the second program of our free Lunch & Learn Summer Programs. Garrett Jackson will demonstrate 18th century surveying using replica instruments to help the audience understand the toils and excitement the early settlers had with surveying the land. Garrett will show how a basic understanding of geometry is all one needed to know in order to create boundary lines and divide up the land. Garrett will so discuss survey jobs taken on by William Lenoir and how the occupation was one of the most lucrative professions of Colonial & Federal periods.
