Mule Musings and Mule Mania: Benson Traditions

Record #:
Benson in Johnston County is an example of a small agricultural community that once depended on the mule for farming and mule-trading business for economic sustenance. Those days have long since passed, but each September for the past fifty-eight years, Benson has celebrated its mule history with a festival called Mule Days. The festival attracts between 50,000 to 70,000 people from all over the country.
