Imaginative Architecture in North Carolina-- Part 1: A Shell, Flying Saucer and a Folly

From the March 2014, Our State magazine by Alan Hodge.

This was actually a quiz I took and I got 7 of 9 correct, mostly on some mighty good guessing.

1.  In Winston-Salem there is a former Shell gas station shaped like a cockleshell.

2.  The Futuro House near Frisco on the Outer Banks is shaped like a flying saucer.

3.  Garinger High School original library had a conical shape in Charlotte.

4.  The "Strangest Home in America," Korner's Folly is eccentric architecture in Kernersville.
