Valdese, Burke County's second largest town, was founded by the Waldensians, a pre-Reformation Christian sect from the Cottain Alps of Italy. Members of the group emigrated to Burke County in May 1893, searching for freedom and room to grow. Every year their story is retold in the outdoor drama â€œFrom This Day Forward,â€ the nation's fourth oldest outdoor drama.
