Lee County NC Touri$m Li$ting $pecial Place$/bridges

 I was inspired by a page on facebook  NC Culture to do this blog.
Their page has many daily post of attractions and events going on all around North Carolina .
 I had followed the page for a long time before this Fracking mess came along and I opened our page "Lee County NC say No to fracking" in March last year and they started posting stuff from our page too.
 
Another great Link to learn a lot about what is happening now in Sanford and around is http://www.socialsanford.com/ they have a page on facebook too.
For nearly a year (seems Much longer) I have spent Everyday fighting fracking from happening in NC.
To say the least it has been educational.
One thing I learned is $$ signs catch more attention to a lot of folks more than anything.
So I decided to list some of the Money makers through tourism in LEE County the center of North Carolina
( some call it the heart ) 
and around the surrounding areas of  Frack Zone.
 
Places we will have messed up or destroyed with fracking around here = No Touri$m = no $$$

Let's start with Bridges since they have been an important part of Touri$m a long time. All of these place$ have event$ going on for everyone .

A man plus a penny postcard plus an old memory equals what has grown into one of the states' 
premier historic parks. It is difficult to believe that this slice of  the past was almost entirely built on
weekends (didn't miss church either) by Worth Pickard and a handful of friends and family.  http://olegilliammill.org/


The Original Mill built 1850 washed away in 1928 ,rebuilt in 1979
this Mill still runs too. Even mentioned in North Carolina Historical Museums Guide



Each May this Mill and Park is opened and ran for the public with a wonderful festival for the whole family to share.
 Vendors , music and more . they rent the park through the year for weddings and other events too.
It is in the Heart of the Fracking zone !

 There are several other bridges around like these that the waters bring People to ,for boating ,fishing ,hiking , photography !
All this brings Touri$m Money to our area . Who is going to want to come to the country to see these places all Fracked up?
If we do not Stop "forced Pooling "/stealing land owners rights in NC, before they start drilling they will frack in all these places and no one can stop them.
Thanks for stopping by and Please share this too.
