Where in Carolina Country is This?
The June “Where Is This” photo taken by South River EMC member Dale Jarvis features a mural located on the corner of South Main St. and East Allenton St. (NC 73 and NC 731) in downtown Mt. Gilead. Artist Scott Nurkin recently repainted the mural, which illustrates Town Creek Indian Mound State Historic Site. The arrow featured in the mural points the way to the area once inhabited by the Pee Dee tribe just outside of this Montgomery County town. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Robin Holt of Wanchese, a Tideland EMC member.
