I am trying to finish all work and projects here in the US before I leave in a week for France. I have so many lined up for the 7 weeks we will be there.
I just finished a short term project on this really old country store in Chapel hill, North Carolina.
The Patterson’s Mill Country Store is located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The actual address is 5109 on Farrington Road.
The Patterson Mill Country Store was built in 1973, and was modeled after the first and original Patterson and company store.
The current owners, storekeepers of the store are Curtis and Gail Booker.
The Patterson Mill is a part of the Leigh Farm. Leigh Farm is a 19th century plantation that is now owned by the City of Durham. It has been preserved as a Heritage Park.
Elsie Hudson Booker and John Booker built it in 1973. They built the store to have something that they can do together when they retire. Elsie was a pharmacist in the triangle for forty years. John was working at Liggett and Myers Tobacco Company also for forty years.
I was welcomed on the ground anytime I wanted to shoot. Go check it out next time you pass by!
