Stepping Back in Time
Johnston County can offer a "hands on" history lesson for all ages from the Bentonville Battlefield State Historic Site to the Benson Museum of Local History...we invite you to explore our corner of history in North Carolina. And history is best served with a little taste of local Eastern-style barbecue and sweet tea!
If you are visiting on a Sunday, head to the newly opened Old Grist Mill Museum at Atkinson Milling Company to see the process for making cornmeal and purchase products to cook with at home!
