Abstract:
Built in 1895, the Piney Woods Inn of Southern Pines burned to the ground in thirty minutes. The fire, which took place in 1910, began in the boiler room where a spark from the furnaces had landed on a piece of kindling. Because the inn was made of fat Carolina pine, it burned quickly and firemen were unable to save anything. \r\n

Abstract:
After replenishing his troops as Ramsour's Mill, Lord Cornwallis marched them to the Catawba River on January 28, 1781. For three days and four nights, the army camped at Jacob Forney's plantation while waiting for the river's waters to subside so that they could cross it. The British soldiers searched for and found gold, silver, and jewelry buried in the distillery. Cornwallis' Table, a smooth-faced rock used by the British to dine on while at Forney's, stands in Lincolnton's town square.\r\n
