Arrowhead Historic Landmark
Arrowhead Historic Landmark
The original Lipscomb Manor House (Arrowhead Inn Manor House), built in 1775, was surrounded by a 2,000 acre plantation extending from the Eno River to the Little River. Catawba & Waxhaw Indians traveled the old colonial trading path from Petersburg, VA to Hillsborough, NC, the colonial capital of North Carolina. An Arrowhead monument erected in 1931 sits at the property entrance and marks the intersection of the Old Trading Path. The ten- foot stone monument contains a tablet of an Indian chief's portrait and the words, "Here Passed The Trading Path 1700".
