In May, masonry students and their instructors from South Caldwell, West Caldwell and Hibriten High Schools in Caldwell County got together to build the base for a “Charters of Freedom” monument under construction at the courthouse in Lenoir. According to instructor Matt Woods, Caldwell County students are the first in the nation to construct their own “Charters of Freedom” monument. “Charters of Freedom” monuments around the country display copies of the Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
