Mr. Denard and the Exodus to Pine Ridge

Record #:
During the Second World War, government contracts and employment greatly increased the standard of living in the communities of Sea Level, Atlantic, and Cherry Point. As household goods and staples were rationed, some families decided to invest in real estate, moving to Pine Ridge. The author recalls one man, Mr. Denard, deciding to move his entire house to the burgeoning community. Using heavy cables, the house was lifted onto rollers and carted off.
