Wrapped in History


Author(s):
Abstract:
The 200-year-old Dinkins House in Charlotte, once a tavern on a stagecoach line, but now abandoned and crumbling, was in danger of demolition from nearby commercial development. Rescued by Jim and Judy Boyd, who moved it to their property, the house was painstakingly restored and functions now as their family homestead. The Historic Landmarks Commission awarded historic designation to the original and renovated sections of the Dinkins' house.
