Today's ride takes us to Browns Summit, just northeast of Greensboro (still in Guilford County). The colonial-red, wooden building has great provenance as it was formerly Browns Summit Broom Works, owned by the Reverend Fred Jones until 2001.* Likely, this simple rectangular building, located at 4601 E. Highway 150, was something else long before it was a broom works.
At present, the building is the home of Otter Woodworks. The woodworkers bill themselves as designers and builders of handcrafted heirloom furniture, cabinets, and high end millwork. From looking at their Facebook page, Otter Woodworks seems to do fabulous work. Buildings like this one add so much character to our landscape. How wonderful that it is being maintained.
Happy Friday, folks. Let's hope these blue skies return soon!
*Rev. Jones' story is very interesting and available here.
