This is a free site with historical markers on both sides of the busy highway (look both ways)... the folks on site are extremely knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge.

All Central NC residents, especially those with long family connections with the area, should be familiar with this story. It is sad that relatively few people have an appreciation for this fascinating, and much neglected gem.
