Where in Carolina Country is This?
The June Where is This photo by Scott Gates features Ken Wilson’s Store, located on Highway 111 & 142 at Fountain’s Crossroads between Tarboro and Oak City in Edgecombe County. According to reader Julie Rawls, the store was previously owned by Sam and Alice Wilson and known as the S.F. Wilson Store, a.k.a. Sam Wilson’s Store. Mrs. Wilson served on the Edgecombe-Martin County EMC board of directors for many years. The store, now Ken Wilson’s Store, is a thrift shop and gathering place for locals to share community news and catch up with each other. The winning entry, chosen at random from all the correct submissions, came from Annette Glover of Elm City, a Pitt & Greene EMC member.
