Where in Carolina Country is This?

The March “Where Is This” photo by Renee Gannon features the mural known as Cock n’ Bull, located at the corner of Sawmill Road and NC Highway 86 in Cedar Grove, just outside of Hillsborough in Orange County. Deborah Weaver remembers watching the artist bring the mural to life on her daily drive through the intersection. Many readers recall the old Haywood Villines Store and then th Snipes Store the mural is painted on, where you could buy gas, produce and even hoop cheese. The building also once held a restaurant and even a barbershop in the back of the building. A few submissions included the news that the store is again being renovated to hold a store and grill. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Linda Rosemond of Hillsborough, a Piedmont Electric member.
