    The July Where is This photo taken by Tara Verna is one many of you have passed along NC Highway 86 in the Prospect Hill community of Caswell County. That highway is a popular route for folks traveling to and from Virginia. Often called “Shangri-la,” this miniature stone village was constructed by local Henry Warren. Beginning in 1968, Mr. Warren used rock from his tobacco farm to build the stone structures, spending the next 9 years adding buildings until his death at 84. According to Sharon Sexton of Yanceyville, the village has at least 27 different structures. Tim Ramsey noted: “I always knew there was a REAL Shangri-La!” If you visit, sign the visitor’s registry. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Piedmont Electric member Brenda Jones of Hurdle Mills.
