The Trail of History is a collection of privately-subsidized bronze sculptures, or similar permanent material, memorializing the men and women who shaped and defined the rich history of Charlotte-Mecklenburg. It is a long-term project involving the design, fundraising and construction of the sculptures. The Trail of History will stretch through the signature urban piece of the Little Sugar Creek Greenway running from 7th Street at Central Piedmont Community College south to Morehead Street.
The application enhances a visitor's experience by augmenting the trail's placards with text, images, videos and website links that provide more information about the lives of the men and women memorialized by the trail. Additionally, it provides a user with navigational assistance.
