Rogers Store


Rogers Store, originally uploaded by Adam's Journey.

Rogers Store is a tiny community near the Wake/Durham County line. The community is located on Old Creedmoor Road (former NC 50) at Boice Mill Road.

Rogers Store was settled prior to 1840. Rogers Store was named after Colonel Ransome Rogers, the community's first store keeper.

The sign for Rogers Store is one of the few remaining black on white community signs left in North Carolina.

Hey quick question--I'm attempting a research paper on the Rogers Store community and was wondering what your sources are on this information. Thanks!

I learned the information via:

William S. Powell's The North Carolina Gazetteer - A Dictionary of Tar Heel Places

there's a newer edition out now.
