[quote=shofar;2577047]I represent a small group of messianic believers who are looking for a small town in North Carolina for the following reason:

Columbus County (down-east carolinah) would fit that in many ways. Several small towns in the area where existing houses could provide a village setting including Whiteville where a lot of houses are presently vacant. Whiteville itself is 45 minutes from Wilmington; about the same distance from Myrtle Beach. About 55 minutes from Fayetteville.

The county itself has significant acreage - things grow well here and the growing season is fairly extended. You have beautiful oak trees here as well as Palm trees so the climate is pretty nice. Zoning wise, this is likely the most non-zoned place I've ever lived in. Pretty much what you want to do is what you can do. Pecan trees abound, sweet potaters are plentiful (Tabor City, within the County, is the Tuber Capitol of the World, I believe) - strawberries, blueberries, whateveryoulike berries grow here...............

Recreational opportunities would include Lake Waccamaw which is in the county and has swimming, boating, canooing opportunities. And of course the proximity to many Atlantic Coast beaches in less than an hour. (Oak Island, Sunset Beach, Carolina Beach, Bald Island Beach..................they would love more visitors.............)

Conservative area; life highly centralized around church attendance; schools you would have to check out - people who grew up here and get higher education degrees elsewhere come back and raise their families here so they must have thought the education was ok.

So, you might want to check that out. I would agree with other posters that NC is full of counties and towns where what you're asking would fit. I just thought i'd throw another into the mix.

Shalom

lol - i realized that after the fact.............pays to read the post date -

however, i always figure that the subject itself is a current one in many ways so the applicability remains - maybe there is another group of nomadic souls in search of a desert oasis.............a refuge....a sanctuary....and two years ago, i could not have even pointed to whiteville nc on a map....so perhaps i was responding belatedly for such a time as this.................


so i wonder where they wandered? where did they find their land of milk and honey?
