The Polk County Historical Association will start its 2012-13 season of monthly programs on Tuesday, Sept. 4 at 2:30 p.m.
The free program will explore the topic “what it was like” medically in Polk County and Western North Carolina when people settled here in the late 1700s and 1800s and well into the 20th century.
Anna Conner will present the program at the museum on Walker Street in Columbus. Everyone is welcome.
