Historic Farmhouse Moves Across the Street

The historic George Upchurch farmhouse in Cary took a short trip last week. After standing at 6101 Collins Road (recently renamed Waldo Rood Boulevard) for more than 100 years, the house was moved across the road to a new site where it will be restored, offered for sale and assured of preservation.

Stories from a Family Cookbook

The cookbook has a copyright date of 1898 and bears witness to overuse. There are side notes. There are recipes tucked between its pages which were cut out from other publications and pasted on cards. There are recipes copied in careful handwriting on sheets the publisher left blank for that purpose. There are recipes from friends, typed on old typewriters with keys that stick. The old type print still looks crisp and dignified.
