Wallace in Duplin County is OUR STATE magazine's featured Tar Heel town of the month. It is a place an individual can go on a shopping spree at the former stockyard site where vendors bring truckloads of items to sell, and then follow it up with a refined afternoon tea. The textile industry faded in Wallace, as did the stockyard sales. The last textile plant closed in 1998. The town is reinventing itself through downtown revitalization. The downtown area achieved historic status in 1995. A number of buildings have been restored, and unique specialty businesses have opened in them.
