History

Roxboro/ Person County History

Bordering the counties of Durham, Orange, Granville and Caswell, and sharing a border with the state of Virginia, Person County is in the Northern Piedmont section of North Carolina. It is 30 miles north of Durham on U.S. Highway 501 and 150 miles from the Charlotte area. The county is more than 400 square miles in size and claims two small mountains – Mt. Tirzah and Hagar’s Mountain. While much of the Piedmont region is filled with narrow ridges and abrupt ditches and gullies, the structure of Roxboro and Person County is much gentler. Its watercourses have created numerous valleys with strong swells that translate into hearty-sized, flat plateaus. The main watercourses in Person County are the Hyco and Mayo lakes and the Tar and Flat rivers. Roxboro, with a current population of 9,000, is the largest town and the county seat of Person County, which has a population of more than 39,000. The community’s size provides a sense of small-town hospitality and a gentler

pace that embraces progressive goals and an intense community spirit. Person County’s primary transportation sources are two U.S. highways, 501 and 158, and three state highways, 157, 57 and 49. Access to Interstate 85 is just 30 miles away. Rail service has been in Person County since the late 1800’s. Norfolk Southern, the community’s only rail carrier provides daily switching service to Roxboro from South Boston. For air transportation, most residents use one of two nearby airports – Raleigh/Durham Airport (45 miles) and Greensboro (60 miles). For commercial and smaller plane traffic, corporations and flight hobbyists have access to Person County Executive Airport, which has a 6,000-foot paved and lighted runway.

HISTORY Person County was established in 1791, when neighboring Caswell County was divided into two equal squares. It was named after Revolutionary War General Thomas Person, a trustee at the University of North Carolina who gave generously to the college. Subsequently, a building – Person Hall – was later constructed in his honor on the UNC campus. Stephen Moore, also a Revolutionary War general, had a love of the community and its picturesque setting. While commanding troops in the area, he once rode to the top of a hill to survey the beauty of the land. He proclaimed Person County a “Lost Eden” and vowed to return one day to make it his home.

History

In 1793, he bought the property and built his home on the place he called “Mount Tirzah” (Mount Beautiful). His home remains today and is still owned by his descendants. J. A. Long is regarded as the founder of modern Roxboro. Investing heavily in major railroad companies, Long improved the region’s transport availability, which soon brought tobaccoprocessing plants and warehouses to the community. Long also founded Peoples Bank in 1891 and Roxboro Cotton Mill in 1899. His son, J. A. Long, Jr. shared his father’s inspiration and determination in bringing growth to Roxboro. Long, Jr., was instrumental in bringing the Baker Company – later known as the Collins & Aikman Corporation – to the community.

Roxboro is also home to several famous athletes, including current PGA Senior Jim Thorpe. Perhaps the community’s most famous athlete was Baseball Hall-of-Famer Enos Slaughter, who played in the Major Leagues from the 1930s-1950s. Slaughter was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985, and a statue capturing his slide into home plate during the 1946 World Series is displayed in front of Busch Stadium in St. Louis. He is also remembered for having played in five World Series and being on the winning team four times. Slaughter played for the St. Louis Cardinals, the New York Yankees and the Milwaukee Braves.

tours Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Group tours are available at other times. The museum phone number is 336-597-2884.

History

Visitors to the Person County Museum of History are amazed when they see how impressive the campus is here in Roxboro. Although it is not a typical museum setting, there is such a wide variety of unique collections and buildings that there truly is something for everyone. Both residents and out of town visitors can see what a treasure this museum is and historians as well as casual visitors delight in the artifacts and information they find. While on a tour of the six-building museum campus, visitors are taken back to earlier eras. The tour begins with the main house, which was built in 1901 by former North Carolina Governor William Walton Kitchin, who governed from 1909-1913. There are rooms and exhibits dedicated to baseball great Enos Slaughter, military history of the area, textiles and mills, along with the Dorothy Brooks doll Gallery (housed in a building that was formerly the R. P. Brooks General Store) – a family’s

collection of various artifacts spanning many years. In addition to these wonderful exhibits, the museum campus is home to the oldest known school still standing in Person County and possibly even the state of North Carolina, the Van Hook Subscription School which started in 1810. Also on campus is the original office of Drs. John and William Merritt who were “buggy” doctors from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. This doctor’s office is completely equipped with its original pharmacy, medical instruments and supplies. The old Tobacco Pack Barn is where visitors to the museum can learn about early agriculture and how tobacco was processed for sale at market. The museum’s Docent guides will take you through the tour while telling you charming stories and interesting information about the many facets of Person County’s rich history: the old schools and sports memorabilia, early uptown Roxboro and its businesses, our

military heroes, the African-American history of Person County, the Sappony Indians of the High Plains community, memorabilia of Victorian lifestyles of the county, Person County’s link to the Titanic and much more. The past is indeed alive here! Tours of the Person County Museum are all guided tours and are catered to your individual interest, time constraints, etc. We give tours to both individuals and all sorts of groups – schools, churches, youth groups, senior citizens, just to name a few. Group tours must be scheduled ahead of time and so receive a group rate on admission. The museum’s operating hours are Wednesday through Friday from 10 am – 4 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm, with special weekend hours during the summer months and other times by appointment. You may contact the museum by calling 336-597-2884 or email us at pcmuseum@roxboro.net for more information.

ith 211,579 acres of farmland and 55,539 acres of cropland in Person County, agriculture is still a viable profession with 850 working farms. Before the Civil War, Person County had many large plantations. Early farmers produced tobacco, cotton, corn, wheat, oats, fruits, vegetables, cattle, hogs and sheep. These products can still be found in Person County, however, many of the area’s largest plantations were dismantled as a part of the reconstruction following the war. Tobacco, still a leading producer, is beginning to decline with the influx of foreign tobaccos. Farmers have had to diversify to replace lost tobacco income. The five businesses highlighted here exemplify the diversity of agriculture in Person County including an entrance into the environmentally friendly green technology arena with Carolina Solar Energy.

The Rock Hill Farms The Rock Hill Farms, which includes Cross Creek Dairy Farm, occupies 1,200 acres. Six hundred acres are made up of pastureland and woodland and the other six hundred acres are used to grow tobacco, no-till corn, no-till soybeans and wheat. Father and son, Mickey and Scott Clayton, operators of Rock Hill Farms, currently manage about 240 dairy cows and 150 replacement heifers. Their milk is distributed to a five county area after processing. Following the tobacco program cuts in 1972, they decided to diversify into the dairy business which Scott manages today. In addition, they raise about 130 brood beef cattle and 125 stocker calves. They employ six full-time people and approximately 10 seasonal people. In 2004, Rock Hill Farms was selected as the North Carolina Conservation Farm Family of the Year. This prestigious award applauds them for taking care of their land with appropriate practices for soil and water.

J & B Herb and Plant Farms J & B Herb and Plant Farms, in business since 1994, is one of Person County’s best kept secrets. A mainly wholesale business with a customer base that spans four states, J & B Herb and Plant Farms is happy to receive retail customers on Saturdays during the growing season. With a variety of certified organic herbs and seasonal vegetable plants featuring many heirloom varieties, they are well stocked and ready for your spring and fall plantings. Visit J & B Herb and Plant Farms located at 620 Weldon Wrenn Road in Roxboro and check out their seventeen greenhouses.

Solar Park In the summer of 2009, Progress Energy Carolinas’ power generation mix in Person County became a little sunnier, as a 650-kilowatt (kW) solar array went online and began producing electricity. The photovoltaic solar energy system, located at the Person County Business and Industrial Center near Roxboro, is owned and operated by Carolina Solar Energy LLC. Progress Energy will purchase electricity from Carolina Solar Energy and will add it to the mix of resources used to meet the needs of 1.5 million households and businesses in the Carolinas. “Solar energy is a growing part of our company’s balanced strategy for meeting the needs of our customers. We are proud to support this innovative technology and continue our long partnership with Person County” said Lloyd Yates, CEO and President of Progress Energy Carolinas. Covering five acres and deploying 3,420 190-WATT PV solar panels, the Person County Solar Park is expected to generate 847,000 kilowatt-hours (847 megawatt-hours) per year, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 600 metric tons annually. This is the equivalent of removing more than 100 vehicles from the state’s roads.

Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm is one of North Carolina’s largest bison ranches. Bison (commonly known as buffalo) freely roamed the Hyco bottoms in what is now Person County through the mid 1700’s but were hunted to extinction here by the latter part of that century. In the early 1800’s Jack Pleasant’s ancestors settled in the Bushy Fork community and began a 200 year relationship with the land. In 2001, Jack and Sandy Pleasant re-introduced buffalo into Person County. Today Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm’s tasty and nutritious buffalo meat is

sold not only to Personians, but is a staple for patrons of the Durham and Carrboro Farmer’s Markets. Civic and church groups, agricultural groups, and youth and senior citizen groups regularly tour Sunset Ridge to learn about bison behavior and to view North America’s largest land mammal up close. Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm is one of a growing number of Person County farms and ranches dedicated to improving the local food system by growing and marketing meats and produce directly to area consumers.

Forestry The manufacturing of forest products has long been a major industry in the state of North Carolina, dating back to the naval stores industry of the pre-Revolutionary period. This is also true of Person County, with two major players in the forest products industry operating manufacturing facilities. As the population of our state has grown, and forest land is lost to development, it has become important to manage our forest to be as productive as possible. In 1981, Bernard & Dryman Consulting Forestry began to do this for the private landowners in our state. The North Carolina Extension Service defines a consulting forester as an individual that represents their client in all matters concerning the forest. Bernard & Dryman Consulting Forestry has done this, with a list of services that include management plan preparation, timber appraisal, timber marketing, and reforestation.

Person County Celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Relay for Life Person County Relay for Life is one of Person County’s greatest events usually held the end of September at Person High School. Relay for Life is the signature fund raising event for the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is a twenty-four hour event which symbolizes how cancer is a twenty-four hour a day battle. The event’s “survivor walk” honors cancer survivors who are applauded as they walk the track in celebration of their personal victory. Person County has over 500 survivors who are also honored each year with a Cancer Survivor’s Appreciation Dinner. Person County’s fund raising efforts have ranked in the top ten in the nation per capita based on population for the past several years.

Our community has proven we will not stop until we find a cure.” In the luminary ceremony, candles are placed in bags that are purchased in honor, prayer or memory of a survivor. The luminary bags outline the track and the ceremony is held after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost their battle against cancer.

Community Services

United Way’s mission is to mobilize the caring power of our community to help one another by making lasting improvements on health and human care issues. Living United means being part of that change. Person County United Way helps people from every part of our community work together on important human care issues. It is committed to making lasting improvements on those issues. It works to strengthen the every day support systems of community life – how individuals, families and neighborhoods work to support one another – and is prepared to assist people when those systems alone are not sufficient. The community is aided primarily through the funding of 16 Partner Agencies, which are independent, local, non-profit, organizations that deliver services and programs to area citizens. United Way believes that funding these organizations is the most efficient and effective way for resources to be channeled into the community, and we recognize that these agencies have the know-how to make donator dollars “stretch” to their greatest potential. The four Community IMPACT Areas United Way addresses in building a stronger, healthier community are: • Strengthening & Supporting Families- we acknowledge that families are the foundation on which strong neighborhoods and communities are built. • Meeting Basic Needs & Crisis Services- cares for individuals and families by providing food, shelter, clothing, basic medical care, and educational opportunities to form a social safety net of essential services in our community.

• Empowering Children & Youth to Succeed- children are better able to achieve success in both the classroom and in life when the following occur: they enter kindergarten ready to learn; they spend quality-learning time with their parents; they attend structured after-school programs; and they have positive goals for their future.

IMPACT in our community, all aspects of our finances are subject to an annual independent audit by a certified public accounting firm.

• Promoting Health & Wellness- by helping people change their lifestyles to move toward a state of optimal health in mind, body, and spirit, individuals will live healthy, independent lives.

You may think volunteering means picking up a paintbrush, planting trees, or working in a soup kitchen. But many nonprofits need professional services like writing a business plan, doing their books, developing a Web site, board governance or software training. Person County United Way offers you a variety of ways to get involved and make an IMPACT through our Volunteer Solutions.

Every year, the United Way IMPACT Councils, one for each IMPACT area, assesses the needs of our community and makes recommendations on funding and distribution to the Community Investment TEAM. Based on these annual recommendations, United Way develops initiatives, supports collaborations, funds programs, convenes experts, and fosters established and new community services. To ensure donator contributions make the maximum

Whether you are giving a monetary donation, advocating on behalf of an issue, or volunteering your time, you are joining a movement for a brighter future for all Personians.

Person Memorial Hospital Person Memorial Hospital is a 110-bed community, not for profit hospital serving the people of Person County and surrounding communities. Quality Health Care with a Personal Touch is not just a slogan – it is what patients expect and receive at Person Memorial where health care continually is improved to meet the expectations of patients and medical staff. Person Memorial recently completed a major renovation/addition project involving the Specialty Clinics, Surgical Suites, Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit. Cardiac Rehab and Rehabilitation Services soon will receive new/updated quarters. The Specialty Clinic, offering the services of physicians from surrounding areas, provide health care not available on a full-time basis in Person County. They are located in a renovated wing of the hospital and resemble a private physician office. Clinic space is designed to provide for patient comfort, privacy and convenience. Services include Rheumatology, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Endocrinology, Nephrology, Hematology/Oncology and Neurology. Operating room services have shifted to less invasive and more outpatient oriented procedures over the past few years. To accommodate patients and to offer the best possible surgical experience, PMH offers fully digital suites. Digital operating rooms utilize a digital access system that offers surgeons immediate access to comprehensive patient data, including digital images, medical records and vital statistics. This data is displayed on flat screen monitors. All suites are equipped uniformly, facilitating OR scheduling and patient flow. Family members of surgical patients wait in a comfortable, convenient area and can discuss surgical outcomes in a private consultation room. Outpatient surgical patients have a private exit and pick-up area.

Patients entering our new Emergency Department will be greeted first by a nurse who will quickly assess the patient’s needs and gather basic identifying information. The patient will be taken to a treatment room where the nurse and physician will further evaluate the patient’s condition and initiate a treatment plan. The Emergency Department, which hosts all private treatment rooms, has two areas for patient care. One area is for critical emergency care and the other for less critical emergencies that can expedite care of patients who can be treated and discharged within a short time. The Intensive Care Unit is designed to provide patient-centered care based on individual needs and preferences. Family involvement is encouraged through open visitation and participation in care decisions.

Roxboro MedAccess Roxboro MedAccess is North Carolina’s first Certified Urgent Care Center, and is located in south Roxboro on Route 501. As a certified Urgent Care Center, defined by criteria established by the Urgent Care Association of America, MedAccess has on site Xray, limited lab and pharmacy, emergency equipment, and an emergency physician on duty at all times. MedAccess is open seven days a week. Urgent Care Centers are alternatives to traditional emergency departments. A certified Urgent Care Center has greater treatment capacity than a typical physician office, is open during more flexible hours, and can treat a wide variety of illnesses and injuries. MedAccess, like many Urgent Care Centers, has the ability to administer IV fluids and medications, repair lacerations, treat fractures, and attend to a wide variety of medical illnesses for adults and children. Patients with major emergencies are stabilized and sent by EMS to appropriate hospitals. Urgent Care Centers like MedAccess are private medical practices which typically have much lower fees and shorter waiting times than hospital emergency departments. Patients at MedAccess receive routine as well as emergent care in a rapid fashion in a friendly setting. In fact, since opening in December 2008, the average time for all patients “in and out, door to door” at MedAccess has been 58 minutes. Health care is expensive, and Urgent Care Centers are a convenient location in which to receive quality care at an affordable price. Urgent Care Centers are able to provide routine care when private physicians are not available, as well as urgent and limited emergent care when needed. No appointment is ever needed, and patients are seen on a ‘walk-in” basis, but may also call ahead or use on line “Zip Pass” to reserve a time fitting their schedule.

Education

PC Partnership for Children Supporting Early Care

Health care, good nutrition, strong parenting and quality early education impact a child’s readiness for success in school and in life. The “Ready Community” program provides the resources, services and support to ensure that young children are nurtured, challenged and engaged in high-quality learning opportunities starting at birth. With over 2,350 children under age 5 in Person County and 656 of them in the care of someone other than their mothers, working families depend on childcare programs to provide quality early care and education for their children while they work. Over the past 15 years, Person’s Partnership for Children has developed a comprehensive continuum of early childhood programs and initiatives to support young children and their caregivers. Person County Partnership for Children keeps its vision always at the forefront of its planning and program development to meet the state’s specific performance benchmarks in the areas of early childhood education, child health and family support. Knowing that the more exposure to high-quality learning opportunities that children have in the early years, the more prepared they are for success in school, the Partnership has worked with its partners to increase the percentage of children in high-quality 4 and 5 star child care placements from 32 percent to 67 percent. Recognizing that strong families can effectively support children in their development, the Partnership has also worked to bring evidence-based parent programming and understanding that improved access to health care and healthy eating helps children be ready to learn. The Partnership collaborates with multiple players in the County to overcome system issues and improve outcomes for children. As we look to the future, Person County Partnership will continue to be innovative and collaborative in order to have successful approaches to meet the needs of young children (birth to age 5) and their families in Person County.

Bethel Hill Charter School Continues the Success Bethel Hill Charter School received its charter in February of 2000 and opened six month later in August. As a public charter school authorized by the North Carolina State Board of Education, the school was challenged to be innovative. The Bethel Hill Charter School Board of Directors did extensive planning to make sure what was offered at the school was innovative and successful. Curriculum was the first challenge. After much research the Board decided on the Core Knowledge curriculum that was implemented across the United States. With the Core Knowledge curriculum the children would be exposed to a greater amount of content. They also decided to implement Saxon Phonics and Saxon Math curriculums, which are generally not found in the traditional public schools. The second challenge was to find the right delivery system. The Board decided small class size with quality teachers was most important. The school-established class size around 17 students per class and sought to hire highly qualified teachers. The Board also wanted the daily schedule to be set so at least three uninterrupted hours could be used for teaching reading and math. In our tenth year of operation the school continues to maintain small class size, has acquired top-notch teachers, and remained true to a schedule to facilitate quality learning. The success has been phenomenal. In every way possible to measure the success of a school, Bethel Hill Charter School has been successful. Academically the students out perform the rest of North Carolina students on the NC EOG test, and they score above the national average on the Stanford Achievement test, the NC Writing test, and the NC Science test. Looking at numbers, Bethel Hill Charter School has had full enrollment with a waiting list the last eight years. The Board has upgraded the facility and expanded the campus from twelve acres to fifty acres. More importantly the joy and satisfaction among faculty and staff, children, parents and community is impressive. Bethel Hill Charter School has been a success story and has become a viable option for parents who seek a quality public education for their children. The entire family of Bethel Hill Charter School continues seeking ways to innovate and achieve quality education.

Roxboro Community School Library, A Gallery in Time Roxboro Community School Library, A Gallery in Time Roxboro Community School, Person County’s only middle and high charter school, offers students and the community a rare opportunity to experience history. Designed as an art and architectural timeline, the school’s library honors the rich history of Western Civilization, from ancient Greece through the modern era. Its architectural elements and ornamentation reflect the cultural influences of major historical periods, allowing students and visitors to walk through time. The library’s main entrance reflects ancient Greek culture with fluted Doric columns and soaring pediments that originated with the Greeks. The eight statues perched above the fluted columns are replicas of primary Greek Gods. On the north end of the library, the massive bookcase is designed in the Roman Tuscan order, while the magazine racks demonstrate how Romans stacked arches to build aqueducts and monumental structures. From the north end of the library to the south wall, 1000 years of history is represented in architectural details, and as you walk from north to south, each step represents 33 years. After passing through the Dark Ages, visitors are transported to medieval Europe. Crenellations on the top of the two main stacks evoke castles and knights, while the rose windows and clustered columns pay tribute to Europe’s grand cathedrals. In fact, a small cathedral is built into one of the stacks on the library’s south end.

26 Roxboro Guide - Roxboro Area Chamber of Commerce

The magnificence of the Renaissance springs to life on the library’s south wall, where complex elements combine to create an elegant whole. The Corinthian order of the capitals is typical of the period, as are the dental and rope moldings. The arched frieze above the doorway contains statues of literary characters, also typical of the Renaissance period. Outside the library, the tour through time continues with representative art from major periods, from the Renaissance through Modern Art. The Roxboro Community School library was designed and constructed by Tim Bonafair, a designer and master craftsman who lives in Roxboro, North Carolina. The parent of an RCS student, he designed the library as a learning lab, with lessons to be shared across curriculums. Roxboro Community School, a North Carolina Public Charter School, is entering its fourth year of operation in Roxboro, North Carolina. The school is housed in a historic renovated cotton mill, first opened in 1900. For the 2009 – 2010 school year, RCS is serving grades 6 through 12 with 540 students enrolled. As a college preparatory school, RCS offers a teacher-student ratio of 18 to 1. The curriculum includes standard college preparatory courses, Advanced Placement courses, North Carolina On-Line courses and North Carolina Community College course opportunities.

Clash of the Carts Started in 2008, the annual Roxboro “Clash of the Carts” has quickly become a hometown favorite. Hosted by the Roxboro Development Group in April every year, the competition invites teams of amateur engineers, mechanics, performing artists, general goofballs, and others to create outrageous human powered soapbox carts to race against the clock in a two block downhill sprint to the finish line. The race is held in the streets in uptown Roxboro going down Lamar Street from Gordon Street through Reams Avenue. The race is not all about speed and professional soapbox carts are seriously frowned upon (e.g. disqualified). Rather, Clash of the Carts welcomes participants with the most outrageous, humorous, ostentatious, crazy, unorthodox, and downright foolish entries. Teams with a great sense of humor and an ability to entertain the judges and spectators earn extra points. This unique event has attracted statewide attention, winning the highly competitive “Best Downtown Special Event” award from the North Carolina Main Street Program in 2009. This is fun for all ages, and we look forward to seeing YOU in 2010!

Arts & Entertainment

The Arts in Person The Kirby Gallery at 213 North Main Street directly adjoins the Theater and is an outlet for local and regional artists to display and sell their creations. With rotating exhibits, art lovers can view a dynamic range of art disciplines. The Gallery is also used to teach private voice, guitar and piano lessons, and boasts a roster of capable instructors, many of whom hold advanced degrees.

You don’t have to spend much time in Person County to realize the importance of the arts to the community. From a sensational Performing Arts Series presented in a historic theater to provocative art exhibits hung in an intimate gallery, the Person County Recreation Arts and Parks and Person County Arts Council have teamed to provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy performing and visual arts. “The arts are thriving in our community,” says Doug Newell, executive director of the Person County Arts Council. Each year the Arts Council sponsors a Performing Arts Series that brings a wide variety of outstanding entertainment. Patrons have been enchanted by the great classical music of The Chamber Orchestra Kremlin from Moscow,

the jazz tunes of Branford Marsalis, the country bluegrass of Rhonda Vincent, and community theatre productions of On Golden Pond, Fiddler on the Roof and The Sound of Music. “There is always something for everyone in our Performing Arts Series,” says Newell. “Support for the arts is reaching new heights with the growth of our patron base from both inside and outside the county.” The crown jewel of the arts program is the historic Kirby Theater, located on Main Street in uptown Roxboro. Once a thriving movie palace, the Kirby is now a Person County government property and is the primary venue for much of the county’s arts programming. With seating for over 850 concert-goers and a grand interior with tremendous hand-painted murals, the Kirby dazzles patrons before the curtain goes up. Businesses will find the Kirby Theater an excellent alternative traditional conference space. Equipped with stateof-the-art lighting, sound and projection systems, the Kirby is well-suited to allow speakers and PowerPoint presentations for large corporate groups or small business gatherings.

Arts in Education is an outreach program that has been embraced in Person County. The program has taken The North Carolina Symphony, dynamic story telling, in-school residencies, and jazz sounds of Frank Kimbrough directly to Person County students, engendering new generations of arts supporters. The Arts Council’s main mission is to promote and expose all students to as many art disciplines as possible. “We are a small community with BIG ideas,” says Newell. “Come to Person County and help us grow the arts in the good soil of Person County.” For more information, go to www.artsinperson.com

Person County Art Guild The Art Guild of Person County became a reality in 1995 after a handful of determined artists and patrons began working together to exchange ideas about ways to promote art in the Roxboro community. From its inception, members used some of their own funds and resources along with grants to purchase the appropriate tools and resources and to fund projects to carry out the mission of promoting the arts in Person County. There are many components that make up a successful Art Guild offering a variety of artwork done in pottery, wood, sculpture, oil painting, acrylics, water color, pencil, photography, and computer art. This diversity exists in the Art Guild of Person County. The Guild partners with Piedmont Community College, area schools, the United Way and anyone else interested to present

art demonstrations, to educate interested people on a particular specialty, and to display their craft. An annual contest for members and non-members finds many local and regional artisans competing for “Best in Show� in four categories. The Art Guild meets September through May at the Kirby Gallery in Uptown Roxboro on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Membership is $25 for individuals and $40 for families. The Art Guild of Person County is a non-profit organization. Practicing artists, patrons and corporate sponsors are always welcome. For additional information visit www.artguildofperson.org, email artguild@peoplepc.com or contact the Kirby Gallery at 336-597-1709.

Recreation

“What’s there to do here?” It’s a question the Person County Tourism Development Authority office likes to hear because it gives us the golden opportunity to tell all the great things that there are to do in Person County.

You can stay busy – or you can find a special reason for relaxing – here in Roxboro/Person County.

Promotion of activities, such as festivals and special events, is a main priority of the Tourism Authority. Our lakes, Hyco and Mayo, offer many boating and fishing activities as well as tournaments, and have walking/hiking trails and bird blinds for the outdoor enthusiast. Bring your own tent or RV or rent one of the many cabins and homes that are available on the lakes. A community house at Hyco Lake makes it a perfect place for groups to gather all year round. With the addition of a stage area, Hyco Lake lends itself to be a great venue for music events. Mayo Lake has a new Environmental Education and Community Center geared toward hands on educational programs while the Amphitheatre provides a great setting for outdoor concerts and watching movies under the stars during the summer season. Our area offers a variety of music venues – whether you like classical sounds, jazz, rock, country or bluegrass. The Main Street Pavilion at the Merritt Commons facility in the historic section of Uptown Roxboro provides an amphitheatre venue for spring/summer concerts, as well as being one of the entertainment focal points during the annual PERSONALITY FESTIVAL. The Kirby Theatre offers live stage performances as well as concerts. You can even find dancing available at the “night” clubs uptown. There are a variety of restaurants in the area serving all types of cuisine. Now, you may not find the chain restaurants you have ‘back home’, but that is the fun of eating out in Roxboro/Person County. Sample the flavor of the area! When you need to walk off that good meal, the shoppers will find just the right kind of specialty ladies boutiques, antique shops and unique gift shops along the Boulevard and the uptown area. You don’t have to be from Person County to find a memory as you leisurely tour the Person County Museum of History. With 6 buildings on the campus to tour and investigate, you will be thoroughly entertained for more than a couple of

hours. For the young – and young at heart – Palace Pointe Complex continues to be a big draw for all families. You can see a movie (choice of 8 screens), bowl, play pool, roller skate, be amazed and entertained in the video/arcade gallery and enjoy dinner at the diner. You can even have your own party in one of the many special party rooms. Person County is also known for its wine that is being produced at the Rock of Ages Winery & Vineyard in the Hurdle Mills community. Touring the winery or just sipping a glass while you sit outside and soak up the fragrance of the area, is just the right way to relax and rejuvenate yourself.

Mayo Park

Mayo Park, one of Person County’s premier outdoor recreation parks, can be found just eight miles north of Roxboro off highway 49 on Neal’s Store Road. This 120 acre park takes pride in its family-oriented atmosphere and clean, well maintained facilities. Currently, Mayo Park offers RV campsites, primitive tent sites, cabins, and tent sites with electricity, all of which are accessible by car or Mayo Park’s well maintained system of trails. You can even travel from your campsite to other areas of the park by canoe or kayak and take advantage of Mayo Park’s two canoe and kayak launch areas. Each Mayo Park campsite and cabin is also within walking distance of hot showers and restrooms. Additionally, Mayo Park offers picnic shelters that may be reserved for special events. For larger events, Mayo Park also offers an amphitheatre that is situated in the kind of rustic setting that makes Mayo Lake famous. Mayo Park is known for great camping, but what sets it apart from other campgrounds is its outdoor oriented programming. Mayo Park Rangers plan special events throughout the season that are fun for participants and spectators alike. During the cooler months, Mayo Park Rangers do plan trips outside of the park, but the events held in the park during the warmer months are what Mayo Park is really known for. One event, the Mayo Park Canoe and Kayak Race, has gained special notoriety for its competitive yet community-oriented spirit. Families, businesses, and individuals form teams to see who can paddle the challenging two and a half mile course the fastest. The winner gains a year of bragging rights among Mayo Park’s tight knit community of paddlers, and they always return the next year, with a few new faces, to prove their endurance and skill. If a more relaxed atmosphere is what you’re looking for, you can catch a movie or concert at the amphitheatre, or participate in one of Mayo Park’s leisurely paced nature hikes. With the forthcoming completion of Mayo Park’s new Environmental Education and Community Center, Mayo Park Rangers will expand their programming to include hands on educational opportunities for both youth and adults. Mayo Park’s EECC will include a large reception hall, a warming kitchen, exhibits, an information library and research station, and balconies and porches for wildlife viewing. Near the EECC will be a new playground, two picnic shelters, an ADA accessible fishing pier, and a new restroom facility. The EECC and adjacent facilities are convenient to the Mayo Park boat landing, and surrounded by the rustic ambiance Mayo Park is known for. Whether you’re looking for quality fishing, camping, or just a place to relax, Mayo Park is the place for you.

The City of Roxboro

The city of Roxboro was incorporated in 1855 and has grown to a town of approximately 9,000 residents living within the city limits. Its prime geographic location being in close proximity to the Triangle and the Triad, makes it an attractive area for newcomers. This safe, quiet rural community boasts excellent police and fire personnel who work jointly with county law enforcement agencies to preserve a low crime rate and maintain the rural, small-town charm. With two city reservoirs, Roxboro has a tremendous amount of water and waste water treatment capacity available for both residential and commercial growth. Roxboro operates under a City Council headed up by the Mayor, and a City Manager who handles the day-to-day operation of the city. With Roxboro being the only municipality, the communication and decision making flows quickly with only two government entities working together as compared to layers of bureaucracy found in larger cities. The primary services provided by the City of Roxboro are water, sewer, solid waste, code enforcement, sanitation, fire and police protection, street maintenance and planning and zoning.

Roxboro City Council has successfully managed to keep the tax rate of 61.4 cents per $100.00 of assessed valuation from increasing for 7 years, which makes Roxboro an attractive place to own a home. City Council continues to focus on and update the goals established in the City Strategic Operating Plan of 2006. With the North Carolina Business Climate being chosen Number 1 in the United States, according to Site Selection Magazine in November 2009, we invite you to put Roxboro on your list of places to visit, do business, and stay a day, a week or a lifetime.

Government

Person County Person County Government is lead by five elected County Commissioners with day-to-day administration executed through an appointed County Manager. The primary services provided by Person County Government are health and human services; public safety-including the Sheriff’s Office and Jail as well as Emergency Medical Services and 911 Communications; funding of public education; elections; building and environmental health inspections; parks and recreation; library; airport; tax administration; register of deeds; recycling; and information technology including GIS. The City of Roxboro and Person County partner to provide services whenever possible. This avoids duplication and allows government to be more efficient and effective. Some examples of their cooperation include a joint building inspections department making a one-stop-shop for both the city and county. Emergency communications as well as Information Technology are other shared services between the city and county. The City Fire Department partners with the County Volunteer Fire Depart-

ments through an interlocal agreement as well. Both Governments are committed to economic development, public safety and solid waste management. The partnership extends beyond government services as each entity provides funding to community nonprofit organizations that are providing much needed services to our residents. This is a community that works together to support one another.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the content of our “second” Community Resource & Business Guide. Without authors of articles and businesses willing to advertise, this publication would not be possible. Thanks also to Jeanne Bogue and Stephanie Bowen who contribute to this effort in more ways than I can count. With our mantra, “Shop Local”, I am delighted to report that the photography, graphic design and printing are all done locally, enabling us to keep the advertising dollars in Roxboro and Person County. I hope you all are as happy with the results as I am. Sincerely,


Roxboro Area Chamber of Commerce Business Guide
