The restored 1920’s brick building, once the center of Cameron’s agricultural trade, lends itself to inviting displays in a vintage atmosphere. With two floors of Antiques to browse, a visit will surely be a memorable experience.
It's not unusual for an old barn to be reinvigorated by painting a mural on its broad walls. We've all seen the old Mail Pouch Tobacco murals that dot the countryside using barns as their canvas. But in Cameron, North Carolina, a town built upon tobacco farming, the barns take on an entirely different look.It's all thanks to New York-based artist David Ellis, who grew up in Cameron and had fond memories of its pastoral agrarian scenery. To pay homage to the place that helped form his own sentiments, Ellis invited a group of artists from New York and Tokyo to paint murals on aging tobacco barns in 1999.
Come see the old Cameron Jail, built in the 1880's. It was used until the 1920's and then abandoned. Joe Bauerband saw a piece of history falling apart and decided he had to save it. Bauerband, the owner of the Market at Muse Bros. Store in Cameron, could barely see the town's old jail from the front of his shop on Carthage Street. The structure was being overtaken by underbrush near a wooded area about 100 yards away. Now, the jail is visited regularly by people who come to Cameron to shop for antiques. Bauerband had the jail, which was built in the 1880s, moved to a spot behind his shop about 10 years ago. - Fayetteville Observer
