20171026_120321We started with a great tour at the Person County Museum of History. There is a lot to see on this small property. There are two houses, a schoolhouse. general store, bell tower, tobacco barn and doctor’s office. I was most intrigued by the people of Person County. There is a small exhibit about the Titanic. There was one Person County that died and one that survived.  There was a room dedicated to the story of baseball Hall of Famer,  Enos Slaughter. There were stories of businessmen, men in the service, a Governor and entertainers.  There is an extensive collection of artifacts and information. Take a tour and learn more about the people of Person County.

The bacon with blue cheese was the best but the others had too much vinegar for my taste. We also got pimento cheese and hushpuppies which was okay. (not what I expected) I had steak salad which was very good and I really enjoyed. Claire had fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese which looked okay but she didn’t care for it.   The creme brulee was not very good. I would say overall it was good but not great. Prices were reasonable and service was good so I would give it another try.

20171026_144808We ended the day with a tour at Sunset  Ridge Buffalo Farm. The property is absolutely beautiful  We had a great tour guide that told us interesting facts about buffalo and the farm. We have been to a lot of farm tours in North Carolina but this was unique and we were able to purchase bison meat after.

Person County is easy to get to from the triangle but mainly overlooked. Make a point check it one day soon!
