USITT in Charlotte

Jon spent part of his spring break at the US Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Conference at the Charlotte Convention Center. Charlotte is now the largest city in North Carolina, but it was not settled by Europeans until circa 1755. Around this time Thomas Polk (yes, the granduncle of President James K. Polk) built a house by the intersection of two wagon paths between the Yadkin and Catawba Rivers. The "dark horse" himself was born near Charlotte Town in 1845.
