Another presidential birthplace that had to be visited on our way through North Carolina…James K. Polk. Who’s that? Funny you should ask. There was a museum on site to answer that very question!
I should mention, that this place felt way out in the middle of nowhere. Maybe that’s just the city girl in me, but it seemed desolate. AND a huge storm was moving in, so all I could think whilst taking these photos was “We should be getting a move on.” But presidential landmarks outrank ominous weather patterns. Always.

I’d like to thank North Carolina for sharing her presidential history with us and for holding off the rain till we took pictures of Polk’s birthplace pyramid…You’re a classy dame NC!
