Abstract:
This special NORTH CAROLINA magazine community supplement discusses Burke County. Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the county was known for decades for manufacturing and a number of state installations, including Broughton Hospital. Decline of industry and state cutbacks in employment created a need for county officials to seek new economic directions. McBrayer discusses some of these options, including promoting tourism, expanding healthcare facilities, and attracting retirees.
