Did You Know?

Historic Badin Hardaway Site.

Evidence of the role the Badin area played in shaping indigenous and nomadic societies 10,000-12,000 years ago followed the discovery and management of the Hardaway Site, among the most significant of contemporary archeological finds on the eastern coast of North America.

Among other spear-point styles found in the area, the Hardaway Point has become a renowned discovery that, when paired with the timeline of the Clovis point dictates a remarkable soliloquy of ancient culture in the Carolinas and beyond.
