Yankee Hall in Pactolas, NC.
Pactolas was identified as a community even before the county of Pitt was formed. It was already christened in 1810 by a Greek schoolteacher in memory of a river in Asia Minor. Yankee Hall, a river plantation developed by a New England trader who was building boats there in 1816, was associated with this locale.
My granddaughter, Holly, is planning her wedding reception here in September.
