Well from a genetics standpoint this place is like a treasure. Its one of the last places on earth you can find a wide abundance of Neanderthal DNA. Don't believe me? Spend ten minutes in Wal-Mart or most any other public place in this county.

I've heard an old man somewhere in granite searched woods nearby for many years after his brother died for some buried money. Not sure exact location or if anyone else knows anything about it.

So, I made such an impact on you that you hijacked my name for your vulgarity, huh? I might be flattered if I weren't so disgusted that people can't behave like civil humans anymore. To the person who began this thread, I apologize for the person that doesn't have enough upbringing to act appropriately for interacting with those of us who have manners.

Just because my mother was also my sister doesn't mean you have to be so vulgar, I apologize to y'all, I'm having a hard time since admitting I'm gay.

I would say a Zombie Apocalypse is just what this shit hole of inbreeding needs but a few things stand in the way of that besides the obvious.
1. All the Zombies would starve in a day or two if they feed solely on brains. If they eat fat and lard then hey its a damn smorgasbord for them.
2. The locals that turn after a bite wouldn't be able to feed for lack of teeth, can't gum a skull open.
3. Even the ones that have teeth couldn't get through the five inch thick sloped skulls of the locals.

No treasure here that I know of. The closest you may come to treasure is the Emerald mine that is located in the small town of Hiddenite, North Carolina. I keep hoping to hit a chest full of confederate gold or a cash of Indian artifacts while plowing the garden but I haven’t found anything.
