Continuing his travels to North Carolina's counties, Goerch visits Alexander County. There visitors will find the Brushy Mountains, the county's well-known apple crop, and prospering industry and agriculture enterprises. A number of prominent people grew up there including A. C. McIntosh, dead of the law school at Carolina, A. T. Allen, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the late Romulus Z. Linney, the county's only U.S. Congressman. Goerch visits Hiddenite, Stony Point, and other towns.
