Details

The Yadkin-Pee Dee River Basin is the cradle of civilization in the Carolinas. Here, evidence of 12,000 years of activity documents the history of Native Americans in the Southeast. The basin’s gently contoured Uwharrie Mountains, the oldest mountain range in North America, played as much a role in human settlement as the fertile rivers that slice through them.
