"The Squire Boone Housesite was the 1829 birthplace of Hinton Rowan Helper. Helper was a Davie County man that held center stage in our history in the late 1850’s and whose book, The Impending Crisis of the South: How To Meet It was second to Uncle Tom’s Cabin as a literary work fueling the fires of secession and the Civil War. The house is one of the 33 National Historic Landmark sites in North Carolina."
