Why I Love Moore County

By
Real Estate Agent with Fore Properties

I have lived here since 1992. That almost makes me a native. :) Perhaps I am a prototype of sorts for people who live here.

For starters, I wasn't born here. Most people, in the lower half of Moore County anyway, immigrated from some other place. The fact that I actually moved North (Hartsville, SC is my home) is a bit strange, however. Most people come here from cooler climes, such as NY, MI, NJ and OH. I am in a minority in my own backyard!

That's part of what I like, though. It's fun to see so many different people from such a variety of backgrounds. I had the same feeling when I started college at Clemson. Prior to attending that lofty place of higher education, I had never even heard of a bagel. Or unsweetened iced tea. The very idea... Now I order my latte and a bagel at Panera with ease. I don't even drink tea that much anymore (except at Eva's Diner and Eastwood Diner).

Yes the Yanks have imported some nice things. And they have left a lot of the not-so-nice things behind, for the most part. Traffic, bad attitudes, cold weather, high taxes. North Carolina rests about halfway between New York and Florida. In fact, South of the Border is almost exactly halfway between Palm Beach and Long Island. Perhaps there is more to this centrist idea...

We don't have extreme anything. We're a blended family. The rest of the country could learn a thing or two here, couldn't they? It is amazing to me how well people get along. I attended a Christmas party the other night, and there were rednecks like me, some people from Colombia and even some foreigners from New York. ;-) We had a blast!!

So let's hear it for Moore County. Home of the blended family.

Dan.

Dan,

We don't originally come from NC either.  I went to high school on the East side of Greenville in SC.  I am originally from California but have made the Southeast my home.  My mother-in-law grew up in Clemson - her father ran the Esso club when it was still a gas station!
