I ran across this small church while driving down US 52 towards Wadesboro. There were a lot of weeds growing up around it and no real clear path to drive in there, so I'm guessing that it's not used anymore. But none the less they did have a cemetery behind it and I did find some rather interesting headstones. 

Ernest died at the age of 14 months plus a few days.

Lee R was born 18 months after Ernest died, and then he died at the age of 6 months plus a few days. 

Grover F was born 10 months after Lee R died, and then he died at the age of 3 days.

James Jr was bron 6 years and 2 months after Grover F died, and then he died at the age of 6 months plus a few days.

I just found it rather strange that these 4 babies all died so young. All from the same family. How sad.

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.
