This House In North Carolina Made Entirely Of Hemp Is Beyond Amazing
We love discovering and sharing new and sometimes weird facts about the Tar Heel State, like the 15 random facts about our state in this previously published article. But this one is beyond bizarre – and equally amazing. Not only does North Carolina have at least one house made out of hemp (that’s right, marijuana’s close cousin), but we were also the first state in the US to build such a home. Take a look below at the first hemp house in America.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
