Museum of the Albemarle will host our monthly History for Lunch on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, at 12 p.m. The Chowanoke Nation was the largest of the Algonquian nations in North Carolina. The English encountered them in 1586-one year before the arrival of the Lost Colony and 21 years before the settlement of Jamestown. The Chowan Discovery Group’s Marvin Tupper Jones, a Chowanoke descendant, presents an image-filled story of a people who endured North Carolina’s first colonial war, fought for freedoms in the Civil War, and remained a part of its original area.

If you are attending in person, you do not have to preregister. We are still offering History for Lunch through Zoom as well. Register with the link below:
