Description

A color slide showing two men on horseback and a wagon being pulled by oxen during the Wagon Train parade down King Street in Boone. 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. Visible in the background are the Appalachian Theatre and the Northwestern Bank (most recently the Boone Town Hall).
