Wilson-Covington Selected to Reconstruct Historic Bethabara Park Palisade Fort

Wilson-Covington has been selected by Historic Bethabara Park, Inc. to reconstruct the French and Indian War era palisade fort on the Park grounds in Winston-Salem, NC. The Trustees are currently fundraising to secure the funds necessary to reconstruct this Forsyth County landmark. You may visit the trustees website here. The current fort was constructed in the 1980s and has deteriorated beyond repair.

The fort is the only one know to exist on its original foundation. The site was excavated and archeology conducted in the 1970s to establish the perimeter of the orginial palisade. Bethabara was settled in 1753 by Moravians who migrated from Pennsylvania to settle in the South. The community grew and eventually the Moravians established the larger town of Salem to be the trading and commercial center of their Southern Province and Bethabara became the agricultural center. The fort served to protect the early Moravian settlers from the threat of attack during the French and Indian War.

Wilson-Covington Begins Work on Skeet Field

Wilson-Covington has broken ground on a regulation skeet shooting field in the Piedmont of North Carolina. This field is being built to National Skeet Shooting Association standards and will feature concrete shooting stations and sidewalk, houses constructed of rough sawn board and batten lumber to match barns on the property, and metal roofs.

Wilson-Covington has a long tradition of being involved in the shooting sports as Hayes Wauford, the Vice-President of Operations, is a 3-Time World Champion Skeet Shooter. Hayes’ interest in shooting sports was passed down from his grandfather Clay Ring, Owner and President of Wilson-Covington. This personal interest combined with experience on all size commercial and residential projects makes Wilson-Covington the perfect choice for any sporting venue construction in the Carolinas. This may include hunting and fishing lodges, clubhouses, skeet, trap, and sporting clays fields.
