Three North Carolina towns have made it into the top 100 “Harry-est” towns in the country. This promotion run by Amazon.com tracks the towns that, on a per-capita basis, are pre-ordering the most copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Morrisville comes in at number 59, Hillsborough is 66, and Hendersonville is number 85.
If you ask me, it’s an easy choice as to which is the “Harry-est” town in North Carolina: Potterstown, of course. This small community is near the town of Tamarack in Watauga County. Some act of wizardry has kept it off of the most recent state transportation map, but the North Carolina Gazetteer assures me it’s there.
