"Designed to host live music, conferences, dances and even weddings, the Haw River Ballroom is a place where Jemison hopes “people will be entertained but they’ll also learn something.” The venue has been in the works for about three years, and now that it exists, it will also host a weekly show choir on Tuesday nights and community “Pickin’ Sessions” on Sunday nights."

The House on the Hill

The House on the Hill | Saxapahaw | Scoop.it
A bit of Saxapahaw history from Roxy Farms Antiques: "Many beautiful, old medicine bottles have been found in the house’s crawlspace, and a pair of ancient, wire-rimmed glasses was unearthed while digging the garden. There are tons of old car parts buried in the woods behind the house. Stone chippings from an ancient maker of arrowheads are occasionally found in the soil around the house, and some teeth from a horse were found in the driveway after one heavy rain."
