That's My World #8 - Waxhaw, North Carolina

Just a few miles east of Sun City Carolina Lakes and across the North Carolina border is the town of Waxhaw. The town was named after an Indian tribe that live in the area back in the early 18th century. Formerly a cotton manufacturing center, Waxhaw now is noted mostly for antiques and dining spots. A CSX railroad line runs straight through the center of town with two Main Streets running parallel to it. I took a walk up and down both North Main and South Main and this is some of what I saw.

Waxhaw is a unique town to my eyes. I guess we in Australia have our own version of this type of 'homespun' township. I love all the varied storefronts but I especially like the display of millet brooms. Lovely photograph, Moe.
