North Carolina-Harnett County-May 25


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-May 25

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

If you travel up and down I-95 from Virginia to South Carolina  you pass thru Harnett County. Harnett County was formed in 1855 from land given by Cumberland County. It was named for American Revolutionary solider Cornelius Harnett.

Cornelius Harnett was an American merchant, farmer, and statesman from Wilmington, North Carolina. He was a leading American Revolutionary in the Cape Fear region, and a delegate for North Carolina in the Continental Congress from 1777 to 1779.

The county boast a population of around 110,000 and its county seat is Dunn, NC. Raven Rock State Park is the county’s primary tourist attraction. The park offers visitors the chance to camp, picnic, hike, ride horseback on the trails, or even fish and canoe the Cape Fear River.  It just might be the state’s most underappreciated state park.

Harnett County also claims home to Campbell University and the “Fighting Camels”. Campbell has one of the most unique mascots in the country.
