Group treated to historical tour of town
By Wendy Wood
The Surry County Genealogy Association’s September meeting included a walking tour of downtown Pilot Mountain. The tour was conducted by local historian Carolyn Boyles, based on her recent book, “Early Days of Pilot Mountain, A History and Genealogy.” The group met at Town Hall at 5:30 p.m. and were given a brief overview of the founding of the town. Group members then proceeded east on Main Street with Boyles pointing out various sites that were important in the early days of the town as well as noting the names and owners of original businesses. Following the tour, the group met at Mountain View Restaurant for dinner.
