Abstract:
The Gratitude Train, forty-nine boxcars long, was France’s gift-filled gesture to America for its assistance in the closing days of World War II. Participants in the arrival of North Carolina’s boxcar included Governor Kerr Scott and News and Observer editor Jonathan Daniels. Preserved items such as this boxcar and a woodcut portrait of Abraham Lincoln continue to testify international goodwill.

Abstract:
The term coined by Jonathan Daniels in his News and Observer write-up from the 1920s still applies. The unpainted aristocracy is associated with families such as the Outlaws and Worthingtons, who have had cottages in the area for as long as five generations. The cottages carry the weight of aristocratic history through family legends, such as a Worthington ancestor laid in his Civil War regalia in the cottage’s dining room. The cottages attest hardiness against hurricanes such as the ones in 1898 and 1918 because of Stephen Twine, credited with designing and erecting these summer homes.
