Abstract:
The famous Bailey Deer Park, started by James and Polly Bailey in 1875 as a private enterprise some two miles northwest of the present town of Spruce Pine, was the first wildlife preserve established in western North Carolina. To do it, they had to fight and win against resentful hunters. The only reminders of the park left today are a 15-bed wing added in 1959 to the Spruce Pine Community Hospital and a 1,200-acre development, Deer Park Lake Estates, opened soon thereafter.

Abstract:
North Carolina's next to newest lighthouse is Frying Pan Light, which in 1964 replaced the lightship stationed at the end of Frying Pan Shoals. While its location 34 miles offshore from Southport will render it invisible to most vacationers, it is already a familiar sight to the legion if sport fishermen who take charter boats to these fishing grounds. The new light, called a \"Texas tower\" because it is patterned after off-shore oil rigs, is built in 46 feet of water, constructed of steel girders on pilings, and is topped with living quarters, a helipad, and the \"business\" part of the structure including lights, horns, and other equipment aimed at the maintenance of safe passage in the surrounding waters.

Abstract:
The 500 men who will gather at Fontana, North Carolina August 27-30 will proudly display the flag that they made while prisoners of war during World War II. The flag, made from parachute cloth that was dropped into the prison camp, was the first flag to fly over Japan since December 7, 1941. Most of the men were held at the Omine Machi prison camp, but other attendees will represent approximately one third of the survivors of the Bataan Death March and of Corregidor.

Abstract:
Frontier Village, between Blowing Rock and Boone, now boasts one of the largest vintage railroad equipment collections in the country. Originally started by Bob Powell, a collector of steam traction engines, Frontier Village has now expanded to include the railroad lantern collection of Marvin Scholl, who recently moved to North Carolina from Ohio to partner with Powell. Scholl's collection, considered to be one of the largest and most thorough in the country, can be seen alongside Powell's collection of ancient steam engines and tractors.
