Located just outside of Charlotte in Pineville, North Carolina, the James K. Polk State Historic Site is open Tuesday through Saturday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated. There's also a small gift shop where visitors may purchase a variety of presidential souvenirs to commemorate their visit.
Is this a spellbinding experience?
Probably not. However, if you're a history buff like I am, or you're in the area, it's a fantastic spot to spend an hour or two with President James K. Polk.
