It follows the extraordinary story of the first female patient at the N.C. Insane Asylum (which eventually became Dix Hospital), Annie M. Kirkland, who was admitted March 1, 1856. The project starts with the record of Annie Kirkland’s admission, recently made available by the N.C. State Archives. It demonstrates the ability of scholars and the general public to recover the lives of thousands of patients and patient families who came to “Dix Hill” across the first half century of the hospital’s operation.

His books and digital projects on the cultural and social history of the U.S. have won national awards. UNC has recognized his teaching and community engagement through the Tanner Award for Outstanding Teaching and the Harvey Award for Advancing Institutional Priorities, respectively. He is currently the Principal Investigator for Rocky Mount Mills: From Adaptive Reuse to Public Engagement, a community history and archiving initiative funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

We are very excited about this program and want to encourage anyone interested in learning more about the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES) to attend (landscape architects, civil engineers, park enthusiasts, etc).
The Preserve was developed using sustainable practices and was selected by the Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES) for a pilot program testing the nation’s first rating system for green landscape design, construction and maintenance. Come meet the designers and managers of this project, hear them talk about how they obtained the SITES certification, and then join us on the Tour and explore the natural beauty, abundant wildlife and rich heritage the preserve has to offer!
