About Me

Hi Walker!
What a great job you have done with this project. I was born and raised in Mayodan. Being able to read your well-written history, see the photos and watch the videos was a real treat! I hope that you will continue with this site and perhaps others will send in stories, memories, more photographs etc. It would be great to keep it going.
I vote for an "A" for you on this project! Keep up the great work.

About Me

A Mayodan native.  Moved to Greensboro in 1980 and lived there almost 25 years.  Mayodan is a town you want to come back home to.  Literally was raised in the YMCA.  Daddy's Hot Dogs were the BEST!

About Me

Raised on the corner of Washington St. & 2nd Ave.  My parents were Robert W. & Rievers Moore.  Most people knew my daddy as Wimpy (some as Bob).  I had a brother named Jerry and a sister named Brenda.  Brenda married Berlin Griffin.  We all worked at Washington Mils at one time or other.  I went to school at Elliot Duncan through sixth grade and then went to Jr. & Sr. High in Madison.  Played soft ball with the team at the YMCA.  Mayodan was the best place to have a childhood.  It was the original don't have to lock your doors town.  Good neighbors..Good Friends :)

About Me

Hi,

my name is Walker Hill. I am a seventh grader at Bethany Community Middle School in Bethany, NC. As part of a Social Studies project I have completed  a short history on myself, explored my community and its folklore and researched and developed this website about the history of my community.

I appreciate you taking the time to visit my site and hope you have enjoyed the time you have spent here. If you have any additional information or photos you would like to add, please email me.
