While in North Carolina, you might enjoy a visit to:
Henry Cowan created curious painted statues of concrete soldiers from America's various wars, as well as a bear and George Washington.
Most of the giant wind-animated sculptures of Vollis Simpson were moved to nearby Wilson, but a few have been left in place to tempt whirligig completists.
Corner drug store stands at the spot where Caleb Bradham invented Pepsi in 1893. Sells t-shirts, "Friends Don't Let Friends Drink Coke."
15 feet in diameter, weighs two tons, holds 200 gallons of oil. It can fry 365 chickens at a time. Sheltered inside its own gazebo with a large sign and explanatory plaque, but less visually satisfying than other giant frying pans.
