A few weeks ago, Bridget Madden posted “Oldest House in Sanford, NC?,” which asked readers of NC Miscellany for help. Well, I don’t have an answer (and no one else has stepped up……where are you Lee County historians?!?!), but I did find the trivet pictured above. I recently moved, and as I was unpacking, I found this in a box that had been in my attic for years. I can offer no explanation as to where it came from, or why I have it, but I did remember Bridget’s recent post!
In case you are wondering about the location of the trivet, I didn’t keep it. I donated it to the NC Collection Gallery!
