About 40 of you recognized the scene of Michael Gery’s photograph in the August magazine. It shows Mill Prong house on Edinburgh Road in the community of Bowmore near Raeford, Hoke County. Tina Rickard of Sanford told us she and her brother own the farm and donated the house, which is owned by Mill Prong Preservation. Built in 1795 (near the Mill Prong stream) and remodeled in the 1830s, the house was restored finally in 1993 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is open Sunday afternoons. Some of you thought it is Harper House on Bentonville Battlefield. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Bruce Willoughby of Raeford, a member of Lumbee River EMC.
