Unfortunately the stately tree fell down about 10 yrs ago during a bad storm.....these plaques stand on this site and are written as if the Old Oak was a witness to the history that took place all around it, so have a quick read of these plaques...
British General Charles Cornwallis used this as his command center when he had siege of the town from 1780-81. Cornwallis had the Baron brought to his surgery in this mansion that had belong to the merchant Joseph Kershaw...but he passed away.
The cemetery is full of old Live Oaks, and other nice trees..
And the large Pileated Woodpecker, these birds are crow sized and quite striking and have a loud piercing call.
The Northern Cardinal
the snow over the weekend....it was pretty but it was COLD,.
BUT we may get more on the 28th which is Today!! So I hope to include more town history in some future posts and you can get a feel of how our town has kept some of the history alive.
