Abstract:
Valdese, in Burke County, was settled by Waldenses, French-speaking Protestants who came to the area in 1893. Land brought them to North Carolina. For generations farms were divided as children grew to adulthood, but by the late 1800s, the farms were too small for further division. While some continued to farm, others worked to turn the town into a thriving industrial one. Every year their story is retold in the outdoor drama \"From This Day Forward,\" the nation's fourth oldest outdoor drama.
