Bench View – Catawba River, Hickory

Winding its way from the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina to central South Carolina, the Catawba-Wateree River Basin contains eleven reservoirs, fourteen dams, and supplies roughly two million people with drinking water.

Here is a bench view from the Catawba river as it flows downward from Lake Hickory Dam in Hickory, North Carolina

A Mix of Patterns and Textures

An example of the various materials of different textures and patterns used in the old buildings at Hart Square (A village from the 1800s preserved in its entirety right here in the hills of Hickory, North Carolina.)

Kudos to Bob Hart, a doctor, who has been going and going for 40 years now on this land. He’s gathered 100 buildings from the surrounding counties and moved them to this 200-acre haven. He’s stuffed the cabins with beds, chairs, food, dresses, shoes, brooms, medicine. Each structure represents a part of this village he calls Hart Square.

I hope you enjoyed this series on the amazing buildings and structures at Hart Square.
