Activty in the Person’s Ordinary

The Person’s Ordinary in Littleton is the oldest Historical Landmark in Halifax County, North Carolina. Built in 1739 on the stagecoach road running from Hillsborough to Halifax, one of the main routes of the time period. It is called by Person’s Ordinary as it was owned by Thomas Person and an Ordinary was a place for “ordinary” men to sleep, as the wealthy and connected travelled with letters of introduction and stayed at manor houses during their travels.

We went to the Ordinary to see what we could find, as we had no personal experience with any activity. We got some great evidence, particularly with the K-II meters.
