Gov. Charles B. Aycock (as portrayed by Jim McKee of Southport) rides in a horse-drawn wagon driven by Julius Rouse of Seven Springs Sunday on his way to speak at the grand reopening of his homeplace that was damaged by fire two years ago. The reopening coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site at Fremont and Aycock's 150th birthday. In the background is the site's one-room schoolhouse.
Jean Aycock Chase, grandniece of the late Gov. Charles B. Aycock whose photo is at left, looks at a display in the Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site visitors' center. Her mother, Mildred Gurley Aycock, was instrumental in the early development of the site.
