Abstract:
When night-wandering dogs threatened the lives of David P. Dellinger's chickens, he appealed to the General Assembly to make Dellview a town in 1925 so that the residents could legally shoot the trespassing dogs. Eighty-five-year-old Mrs. J. Henry Dellinger was named mayor of 52-acre Dellview at its founding, and has been the only mayor the town has ever had. The current eight residents, all family of the mayor, have no intention of expanding their little town, either in size or population.

Abstract:
Built in the 1880s, St. Phillip's Episcopal Church in Germanton has five members. The church has no electricity, no plumbing or heat, and no priest. The five members work to repair and restore the church. Last summer, Reverend William S Wells of Winston-Salem conducted services in the church on Sunday afternoons. Since the Stokes' county seat has been moved to Danbury, activity in Germanton has slowed, and in 1959, the courthouse was torn down.

Abstract:
The dipping pool, located in Martin County's Griffin Township, was used as a swimming hole by children. It served a dual purpose, however, as ministers used it in baptism services. Quite often, in winter, ice had to be broken to reach the water. No longer used either for swimming or baptisms, today the hole is almost completely hidden by overgrowth.
