Our State’s 100 N.C. Icons: What’s Missing?

Our State Magazine's 100 N.C. Icons
The July 2012 issue of Our State includes the editors’ list of 100 North Carolina icons. The list is a mix of the broad and the specific. The state can proudly lay claim to Doc Watson, Krispy Kreme, Thomas Wolfe and Belk. But I don’t think clay, sweet tea or black bears are exclusive to North Carolina. Tell us what or whom you would include and, just as importantly, what or whom you would leave out.

We’ll get you started. We don’t see the North Carolina Collection on the list.
Now it’s your turn. Don’t delay!

  1. I’d get rid of waterfalls. Is there a state in the U.S. that doesn’t have waterfalls?

    And I’d add Vollis Simpson’s whirligigs.

  2. Point of clarification: I didn’t mean that I’d like to get rid of waterfalls as a natural phenomenon. I meant only that I wouldn’t have included them on this list.

    My comment about Vollis Simpson stands.

  3. The Lost Colony, Moravian Sugar Cookies, Tryon Palace, Jockeys Ridge, Reed Gold Mine, McAdenville Christmas light display–May I supply a second hundred?
