Kings Mountain, North Carolina, centennial patch, 1874-1974

Betty Logan, long-time Logan and Herndon researcher, kindly sent along the Kings Mountain, North Carolina, centennial patch pictured below. The Cleveland County settlement was originally called White Plains; however, in 1874 when the community incorporated, the citizens changed the name to Kings Mountain in honor of the Kings Mountain Battleground a short distance away in York County, South Carolina.

Betty attended the 100th celebration in 1974. Along with a parade and other festivities, President Gerald Ford arrived by train and gave a short speech. Betty’s father, George Herndon Logan, and grandfather, Leonidas Marion Logan, along with the Herndon families, lived in White Plains and attended nearby Bethlehem Baptist Church. They are buried in the cemetery there. Thank you, Betty!
