Description

A color slide showing a view down King Street (facing west), during the Wagon Train parade in Boone, North Carolina. The Wagon Train, which traveled over multiple days from Wilkes County to Boone, began as a celebration of the 300th anniversary of the founding of North Carolina in 1963. The event would be held every summer until 1974. This image shows a particularly expansive view of King Street circa 1973. Along the right side Hunt's Department Store (now Mast General Store) can be seen. Along the left (in left to right order) are Belk (with people watching from the roof), Crest, the Watauga County Bank, and Farmer's Hardware.
