“Fort Dobbs Gazette” Receives Prestigious State Museums Publication Award
March 13, 2007

DURHAM — A Ft. Dobbs State Historic Site publication, the “Ft. Dobbs Gazette,” recently received the 2007 publication award for Best Newsletter – Black and White from the N.C. Museums Council (NCMC) at its recent annual meeting held in Hickory. NCMC strives to enhance public education by improving the administrative, interpretive, and collections practices of museums, historic sites, science centers and related facilities in North Carolina and annually recognizes achievements in the state’s museums.

Published by Ft. Dobbs State Historic Site, the Ft. Dobbs Gazette is a quarterly publication with approximately a thousand readers from 10 states and 40 cities and counties in North Carolina. The gazette highlights programming and site information, historical articles, and photographs, as well as educational material. Its content reflects the mission of the site, which is to “preserve and interpret the history of North Carolina’s only French and Indian War fort site to all citizens and visitors.” Funding for the gazette is provided by the Friends of Ft. Dobbs, a private, non-profit support group, supplemented by an educational grant from Iredell County Commissioners.
