Main Street in 1885

Main Street in 1885 was the site of the pivotal Moccasin War battle. The Georgia contingent held up in the Central House (left), while the Highlanders defended their town from the Highlands House (right). The story was picked up by the Charlotte Observer and New York Times. Today, a sign pinpoints the place the war was fought in the center of Main Street at the 4th and Main intersection.
