Where in Carolina Country is This?

    The February “Where Is This” photo by Michael Huss features the Walker Top Baptist Church, located on top of Burkemont Mountain near Morganton in the South Mountains of Burke County. According to Huss and a few readers, the church was built around 1840 by Joseph Alexander Walker and is still used today for homecomings and reunions. It is believed to be one of the oldest churches in the county. Sharon Winters notes that a local 5K goes up the mountain and ends at the church, which sets at an elevation of 2,900 feet. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Deborah Lambert of Nebo, a Rutherford EMC member.
