A trip to the Malcolm McMillan Blue farmstead is a trip back in time to the days the Sandhills area was known as “the Pine Barrens.” The 1825 farmhouse and museum which sits on 7.5 acres provides insight into the lives of early pioneers in the area. The house is filled with authentic furnishings of everyday life during the 1800s. Visitors get a first-hand feel for what life in the 1800s was about by touring the farmstead. The grounds are shaded with 100-year old Darlington oaks and are composed of a windmill, gristmill, water well and numerous barns.

Railhouse Brewery was officially founded on Dec. 1, 2010 in the historic town of Aberdeen, North Carolina. Started by military veterans Brian Evitts of the U.S Navy, and Mike Ratkowski of the U.S Army, the brewery is proudly veteran-owned. Meeting as managers of the same company, the two were drawn together by the same home-brewing passion to make excellent beers. Brian has been an avid home-brewer for nearly 15 years, while Mike has always enjoyed the culture of breweries. In the new wave of craft breweries, they found that their favorite style was greatly underserved – brews focused more on the malted barley, not so much the abundance of hops.
