Most archaeological sites are investigated for a few years and then… archaeologists move on to new locations. Where long-range research has been conducted, it has often been under several directors and different plans of research. Town Creek, situated on Little River.

Downtown Mount Gilead. Most buildings in town were built late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century. Mount Gilead had an abundance of timber, clay, stone, and slate to provide for any sort of construction that was needed or desired by owners and builders. Several structures incorporate local sandstone used in door and window sills and lintels. The Mount Gilead Downtown Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.
Mount Gilead Town Hall.
The building housing the theatre was originally built by L.P. Byrd as Moore’s Livery. In 1934 it was altered for use as a motion picture theatre. It burned in the late-1930’s and was rebuilt as the Gilmont Theatre and lasted until 1954. It was renovated in 1955 to become the Town Hall. The theatre seated 290 and was operated by Everett Enterprises until closing. Today it is still being used as the Town Hall.
Mount Gilead-Restructuring and New Chief of Police
Exciting Times Ahead for Mount Gilead with the restructuring of the Police Department. There is the Department wide reorganization of the current Policing structure and now with the selection of Talmedge Legrand as the new Chief of Police. After a thorough vetting of 48 Applicants, the Police Advisory Committee made their final recommendations to the Town Manager. In consultation with the Mount Gilead Mayor and Town Board the decision was made to begin a new era in Mount Gilead Policing. It is the intent to host a reception and hold a “Swearing In” ceremony on Tuesday, October 4, at the regularly scheduled Town Board meeting. Details will be forthcoming.
