County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to help implement a two-year strategic plan to develop a branded tourism initiative and marketing plan for seven rural counties in central North Carolina. This project will result in a clear destination image for the region, to be known as North Carolina’s Central Park, and the development of four thematic heritage trails (Settlers Trail, Birding & Natural History trail, Transportation & Industry Trail, and the Agriculture Trail) that will both attract visitors and enhance their experience by physically linking historic sites and communities in these seven counties.
