at the site of the old McDaniel School.
It is a wonderful opportunity to
experience a glimpse of the past.The Old School Sorghum Festival
is free to the public and offers fun for the whole family.
Watch sorghum being cooked, listen to live music and tour the
McDaniel School "Museum". This will be the 20th year of the Annual Old School Sorghum Festival
which began in 1998.
Tour an original General Store which served the Mintz Community in the early 1900's.
It was moved from its original location to the site of the Old School Sorghum Festival in November 2002.
This general store housed the Mintz post office from 1900 to 1939 and was located
on the Wilmington branch of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad.
