The Cool Water Historic Foundation, Inc. is a 501-C3 non-profit begun for the purpose of procuring, stabilizing, restoring and saving for future generations, the Solomon Carter house believed built in 1768, when he purchased that parcel of land in the Northeast Cape Fear River area of Duplin County, Eastern North Carolina. I'm a direct descendant of Solomon Carter, who served in the American Revolution. In March of 2009, I purchased this ancient structure and in April of 2015 our hard work and resources reached an important high point when the house was added to The National Register of Historic Places. It is now referred to as the "Carter-Simmons House," as the Simmons family and their descendants lived there from 1850 until it was vacated in 1965, remaining unattended to until I bought it in 2009. We are now actively seeking sponsors to help in its full restoration. Please Help Us Save America's Vanishing Early Architecture! And Please Start by visiting our website at www.coolwaterfoundation.org -- and also visit, comment and 'like' us on Facebook, too!
Thank you, and feel free to call me!
