Where in Carolina Country is This?

The June photo showed a giant rooster statue located in Franklin County on Rte. 401 near Harris Crossroads (Tarboro Rd.), between Rolesville and Louisburg. James A. Buell told us the rooster was placed in the yard of Lemuel “Rooster” Hoyle about four years ago. Mr. Hoyle passed away approximately three years ago, he told us, and his widow, Joanne, still lives there. Many of you knew the correct answer. And lots of children love seeing this scene as they ride by. The winner, whose correct answer was selected at random from all the submissions, was Jerry Keith of Wake Forest, a member of Wake EMC.
