Great Scot!

Record #:
Conditions in Scotland in the 1700s, including the start of sheep raising, changes in the hierarchy of clans, and uniting England and Scotland, encouraged many to seek a new life in North Carolina. By the late 18th-century, the largest population of Scots outside Scotland lived in the state. Their history is remembered yearly in the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games and Gathering of the Scottish Clans. Ancestry can be traced through libraries, courthouses, and the Scottish Heritage Center at St. Andrews Presbyterian College.
