Center of History

This site and "meeting house" was the area birthplace of a new country in pre-revolutionary meetings, a new county (Alamance), a new county seat (Graham), an early public library, a courthouse, a school to college presidents and a governor, and a center for area leaders to find guidance and faith as they founded other area churches. This is the birthplace of Elon University. Traveling down this early Indian Path and stagecoach road and leaving their marks in this area were the names O'Kelly, Rainey, Worth, Turrentine, Gason, Long, Stanley, and Jones.
