North Carolina-Ayr Mount-October 6

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-October 6

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. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

In my quest to a daily post to learn something new about North Carolina I occasionally enter a search on wordpress using the tag North Carolina. More often than night I come across political rants about HB2 or some other social issue. Nothing wrong with those posts but it is not what I am searching for. The link to search is found below:

Yesterday I stumbled on to a post written by Lori Lynn Sullivan on her word press blog

Thanks for dropping by!


Lori blogs about all things sunny, which also includes a children’s book she has written called Our Sunny Day Ride, nature, the simpler things in life, and God–the creator of all life.

She did a post on a place in North Carolina I never heard of before called Ayr Mount. Ayr Mount is a plantation house built in Hillsborough NC in 1815. It was owned by William Kirkland who named it after his home town of Ayr, Scotland.

Photo below is of Ayr Mount.


Ayr is located 37 miles south west of Glasgow, it is a popular seaside resort, complete with charming sea front, leafy suburbs and range of places to stay.

I am not going to repeat all the wonderful things that Lori wrote on Ayr Mount but encourage you to give her blog post a view. One thing I will share is that the home remained with the Kirkland family from 1815 to 1985 a span of 170 years.

Here is the blog post on Ayr Mount
