Before I went to photography school, I received a degree in Anthropology and Archeology. As I wander around looking for opportunities for photographs, the historian in me sometimes comes out. Last week I happened upon a couple of fascinating historical locations in southern Randolph County, North Carolina. I had the chance to look inside the Evergreen Academy, an original Quaker schoolhouse built just after the Civil War and an adjacent property, the Amos Hinshaw barn, built sometime around 1880. I will be sharing images over the next few days.
