Come tour the Patterson School Foundation property, bequeathed for agricultural educational purposes by Samuel Legerwood Patterson, the first elected NC Agricultural Commissioner. His great, great niece will share the Permaculture plans to regenerate this land, organic farm management of horse hay, the newly re-opened Patterson Equestrian Center and Riding Club, and the Caldwell County Public School’s STEAM program’s campus site. Enjoy this resource-rich land which includes an old hydro-electric dam, the Yadkin River and Ripshin Mountain’s peak.
