The Castle Historic House Museum


Today we mostly remember Bertlyn as Stewart’s sister and “silent” partner in the renovation of The Castle. This presentation will illustrate that Bertlyn was so much more – a humble life-long learner, a creative educator, an empathetic collaborator, a selfless leader, a world traveler, a determined visionary – to name a few of her identities. Some of Bertlyn’s life-changing accomplishments include: creating the first public health nutrition program in NC that became a model for the nation; achieving national and international recognition for her field work and exemplary nutrition education programs; and establishing successful programs to improve the diet, health and well-being of Native Americans and peoples across Central and South America. Attend this session to learn more about her amazing and admirable story.

This program is donation based and is being offered as both a virtual and in-person option. Reservations are required for both options.
