I love walking around downtown Morganton and resting at the old Courthouse. A lot of shade to avoid the sun.

Frequent visitors to Morganton and always this is my happy place to sit and relax. Literally you can take time to smell the beautiful roses in the garden. Morganton is a great town and looking forward to calling it my home away from home shortly.
