Description

A color slide showing a covered wagon being pulled by two black horses, with a man on horseback following closely. 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. The Appalachian Theatre is partially visible to the left in the background, with Northwestern Bank (later the Boone Town Hall) at the right.
