About this event

Please come to the 66th Annual Meeting of the Wake County Historical Society. We will convene for wine and beer at 6:00 PM. The dinner will start at 6:30 and be catered by City BBQ. The speaker will be David Serxner on Governor David Stone's Wake County Properties. Ticket price will be $45 and can be purchased through EventBrite.

Serxner has been looking at David Stone's land purchases in Wake County through deeds, letters, and tax records. He is especially interested in the purchase of Hinton land, since this is the property on which Gov. Stone died in October 1818 and where he is buried. Serxner has also been looking at the sale of Stone's property, both land and goods, after his death. Stone was Governor of North Carolina from 1808 to 1810.

David Serxner is a 25+ year veteran of State employment, having been at the North Carolina State University Libraries since 1997. He holds a BA in Art History from UNC-Chapel Hill and an MA in Public History with a concentration in Museum Studies from NCSU. He is active with the support group board for House in the Horseshoe State Historic Site and has been working with the Research Committee of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission. David is an NAI certified interpreter and has been working in the living history field for over a decade. He has spoken about women's education, primarily that of the planter class young ladies from North Carolina who attended the Moravian Female Seminary in Bethlehem, PA. He is currently researching the letters by and to Ann Steele, the daughter of John Steele, the first comptroller of the United States Treasury.
