President James K. Polk State Historic Site Review

This state historic site 10 mi south of central Charlotte marks the humble birthplace and childhood home of the 11th U.S. president, nicknamed "Napoleon of the Stump." Guided tours of the log cabins (replicas of the originals) show what life was like for settlers back in 1795.
