Abstract:
The Philip Alston house, standing in Deep River's Horseshoe Bend in upper Moore County may soon become one of North Carolina's historical shrines. The house is one of the finest surviving examples of colonial architecture in the state and has a thrilling history of blood and battle. But it came very close to vanishing by fire in 1781, when Tory David Fanning, a notorious house-burner during the Revolutionary War, tried to destroy it. However, the site was saved by a lady, Miss Elizabeth Chancy Altson.
