The Hidden Village in North Carolina That Almost No One Knows About
If you know where to look, you can find a variety of hidden treasures in the Tar Heel State, like the castle found at this link. Not many people, except for the locals, know about a Utopian village that sprang up beginning in 1968 outside of Raleigh. It’s called Shangri-La, and it’s much like the fictional Shangri-La written about in 1933 by author, James Hilton – only it is better, because it has come to life and you can visit!
Shangri-La is located on Henry Warren Road in Prospect Hill, North Carolina. You’ll find a google map indicating the location at this link. The village is always open, however, it’s located on private property so please respect the owners by visiting during normal hours.
