Legendary Doctor

Francis J. Kron was born 1798 in Trier, Prussia, taught French at UNC-Chapel Hill, graduated medical school at the University of Pennsylvania and practiced medicine as a country doctor throughout Stanly County in the mid 1800's.

We visited his remote homeplace this week while on a day trip to Morrow Mountain State Park. This was my first trip to the park that has much to offer in terms of trails, camping, swimming, and nature. Check it out some day.

Have a good day!
