It Happened in Moore County, North Carolina
By Larry Koster
This book is a collection of interesting and unusual “happenings” that occurred in Moore County, NC. Did you know that Gold was once mined here? That a Major League Baseball team once trained here? How about that a meteor landed here? The largest gun and buggy factories in the South were located here. Also the first aerial photography in North Carolina took place here and Whispering Pines became the first “village” in North Carolina. A President and the best marksman in the world lived here and some other well-known people made this their home? This book describes these events and many others. A North Carolina Society of Historians Award Winner. 92 pages.
