  • 1. Greensboro by Waller, Britta
     
    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    Greensboro is North Carolina's third largest city in population. The city spreads across 121 square miles of Guilford County. Greensboro made its mark on early American history as the site of a pivotal Revolutionary War battle in 1781. Almost 200 years later the city was the site of another historic event--the Woolworth lunch counter sit-ins in February 1960. The sit-ins were nationally influential in the civil rights movement. Greensboro is home to a number of institutions of higher learning, including UNC-G, N.C. A.&T., Bennett College, Greensboro College, and Guilford College. Visitors will find attractions such as the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, Greensboro Farmer's Market, and the Greensboro Grasshoppers, a minor league baseball team.

    Author(s):
    Abstract:
    Ice cream sundaes offer a respite from the hot days of summer. Jackson describes a number of shops in western North Carolina that not only serve ice cream sundaes that satisfy the taste buds but serve them in a setting that turns the clock back to a simpler time. The shops are Royall's Soda Shop (Elkin); Woolworth Walk Soda Fountain (Asheville); Boone Drug Store Fountain (Boone); Mooresville Ice Cream Company (Mooresville); Rocky's Soda Shop & Grill (Brevard); Jukebox Junction Soda Shoppe (Canton); The Soda Shop (Canton); Innes Street Drug Company (Salisbury); Jack the Dipper (Sylva); Spanky's (Salisbury); Soda Pops (Bryson City); and Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop (Charlotte).
