John Charles McNeill died at an early age, but during his brief life he established himself as the foremost literary figure of the state and was hailed for many years by popular acclaim as North Carolina’s unofficial poet laureate. His home was moved in 1960 to the Richmond Temperance and Literary Society’s Temperance Hall property in Wagram. The McNeill home is also a visitor’s center for the Temperance Hall. The home is available to tour by appointment only. Call (910) 396-3555 for information.
