In 1799, Conrad Reed of Cabarrus County found a 16-pound yellow “rock” in Little Meadow Creek. His discovery led to the first documented gold find in the United States. Indeed, North Carolina led the nation in gold production until its discovery in California. Join us as we document this country’s first gold rush.
