Abstract:
About 2 and one-half miles long and a mile wide, this 1,600-acre area located about two miles from Burgaw is known as The Big Savannah. It is an ever-changing landscape of wildflowers from February to December. Some of the rare flowers found there are the star flower, triantha, sabbatia, and rarest of all, the Venus fly trap. A request was made to NC Legislature for $10,000 to purchase 500 acres for preservation as a park; however, the legislators did not see the value of wildflowers to the state and denied the request.

Abstract:
White Lake, a Bladen County lake, is a place of beauty. In the old days only two houses were at the lake--the Love's and the Melvine's, and people would come in buggies for picnics and house parties. Now, Iden says, with improved roads, automobiles, and modern conveniences, crowds have ruined much of its placid, peaceful atmosphere. Still it is a place of enjoyment to tourists.
