Laurel Hurst travels to Bostice Lincoln Center

Was President Abraham Lincoln born in Bostic, N.C.?
That’s what residents from Laurel Hurst recently went to find out. They watched a video, read some literature and looked at a lot of pictures. Unfortunately, they still don’t know the answer to that question. There is no conclusive evidence to support the claim, only statements from witnesses passed on down through the years.
“We are fans of Lincoln,” said resident Lois Ballentine. Residents have read a book, seen the movie and now been to the museum all in an effort to learn more about one of the greatest United States President’s.
