Historical Beech Tree
The property has some history that dates back to the early 1900's when a dirt road that used to take travelers from Statesville to Salisbury ran along the back of the farm. This was the original Highway 70. Along this route, you will find the old elevated road bed that now has trees growing on it that are over 100' tall. Remnants of the old bridge that used to cross Third Creek are still visable and are now in the shadow of the new and modern Highway 70 bridge. Tucked away in the woods beside the house, you will find an enormous Beech Tree that is hundreds of years old. This is just one of the natural wonders that you will find on the farm. The Beech tree sits in a very intimate area along a spring fed stream. "Love Birds" that used to travel along the old dirt road would stop at this ancient land mark and carve their names into the smooth bark to proclaim their love for each other. The Beech Tree will hold these memories indefinately in its bark for future lovers who are able to find and view the tree. We will preserve this tree and the area around it so that visitors of our farm will be able to enjoy it for years to come. We would love to show you this and the many other natural treasures at The Arbors. Please call Brian to schedule an appointment to visit at 704-363-0440, http://www.thearborsevents.com/
