Cove Creek Shirts

It's sort of amazing what you can find when you go out and do some exploring on the back roads. I took a little trip over to Polkton NC, which is only about 40 miles east of me. I noticed the water tower and was became curious about the Cove Creek Shirts. Started doing some searching on the net here and found out a lot about this company. They used to make shirts for S.S. Kresge, which later became K-Mart. They made sport shirts, with the button down collars and the landing mallard as a logo on the pocket, during the 70's. They then purchased the Seagoing Uniform company in the 80's. They have a name of Seafarer, which I'm not sure when and how this name came into play here and they are located in Marshville, which is about 10 miles west of Polkton. I also noticed that they have a factory outlet called Bubba Brand. I had seen that sign as I passed through Marshville, but just never knew what it was all about. Now I will have to take a trip over there and check it out. I have listed a couple of links below so you can read more about this company and check out their websites.

Court Street, Jacksonville, NC

Where did they all go? The jewelry store? The bars? The restaurants? The clothing stores? But, as I stopped to walk and take a couple of pictures I could still hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the food from my memories of Court Street. So many changes in the past 46 years... 

And of course, don't forget Old Bridge Street

Stonewall Jackson Training School

Welcome to the Stonewall Jackson Training School located just outside Concord, NC. These here are the original buildings that were built back in 1909. Of course there is a much newer facility located behind all these buildings now. It was the first juvenile home in the state of North Carolina. I have to sit here and wonder what kind of boys were sent here. How were they treated here? Did they go on and lead productive lives from here? 

The Cannon House

One of the "cottages", as they were called, where the boys were put up. 

Another one of the "cottages".

The grounds around the school and cottages.

Concord Mills Mall

Finally back to the walking routine, I hope. On the cold and really hot days I can come here and walk in the mall. It's .8 miles per lap and if you walk all the entrance's it's 1 mile per lap. If the weather is good then I can go to the Fairfield Park over in Mint Hill and walk one of the two courses there.
