Moving the Wall

Moving the wall

Surrounded in dust, Mike Jacobs with E.L Jacobs Masonry, inc. uses a grinder to remove mortar from bricks Monday during a project to demolish a section of the serpentine wall in front of N.C. Wesleyan College to make way for the new Northern Connector rout.

Jacobs, who's father worked on the construction of the original wall, stated that the bricks will be reused in the construction of a new section of wall alongside the Northern Connector.

The new section will be of equal or greater length than the original, preserving the wall's touted record as the longest Jeffersonian serpentine wall in the world.
