Carthage Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 5 photos
House In The Horseshoe is located in Moore County 16 miles west of Sanford and 10 miles north of Carthage on Stateroad 1006. The House's name comes from its location on a horseshoe bend in the Deep River.
The Alston House of upland North Carolina frontier country is built in 1772 and was named retreat by it's owner Gov. Benjamin Williams. The former owner was Philip Alston, a colonel in the state militia. He has been attacked by groups of tories who were still loyal to the king of England. Many of the bullet holes remain.
Gov. Benjamin Williams was ambitious to become a planter. Williams planted in 1801 forty-two acres of cotton. He later died on his plantation in 1814. The House in Horseshoe now contains antiques of the colonial and Revolutionary War era.
- Pros:Typical eighteenth-century plantation houses.
- Cons:Can't think of any.
- In a nutshell:Still bearing the scars of the American Revolution.
