Today we went to the House in the Horseshoe. It was built around 1772 and is called House in the Horseshoe because it sits on a hilltop in a horseshoe shaped bend on the Deep River.
It has lots of bullet holes from 1781 when a few Revolutionists and Loyalists had a shoot-out. In 1798, the North Carolina Governor, Benjamin Williams, bought the house and lived there until he died in 1814.
I would have to say my favorite part of the trip was the video in the museum hut. It was a film of a reenactment they did a few years ago. It was really cool.
MORE NOTES FROM MOM...
They are having their annual reenactment in August. Looks really neat. Check them out on the website.
