Bethabara, North Carolina
FRAME LOA 21; HOA 17
Drawing in pencil on paper of Bethabara Church. A winter scene depicting the church in the middleground with a picket fence separating it from the foreground. The foreground has three figures in the lower right hand corner, a man with a walking stick, a woman, then a child. A dog is running towards them from the center of the picture. There is a barn showing partially behind the church on the left-hand side.
This picture of Bethabara Church was drawn by Julius Mickey in 1848 when he was a boy. He was born in the old stone house which was occupied by the brewer, which in 1939 was being rebuilt for use as a parsonage. He lived most of his life in Salem, where he operated a Tin Shop. He made the big coffee pot now standing at Main and Belews Creek Streets. He was the father of Rosa Mickey, who became Mrs. Henry Fries.
