Just a few miles off I-95 and well within about an hour drive of about 2 million people lies an art treasure for the senses - the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park in Wilson, North Carolina.
If your travels have taken you through the "Old North State," you've likely driven by, through, or around a tobacco farm. The Tobacco Farm Life Museum pays tribute to this golden leaf crop that was largely responsible for rebuilding North Carolina after the Civil War. Tobacco continues to be the state's largest cash crop with almost 153,000 acres devoted to farming it.
