Como, North Carolina Historical Events



2000, February
Miss Hannah Picot passed away in Feb. 2000. Her niece became executor to her estate and sold the farm house with 1.4 acres of land to the Powell family. They plan on doing some restoration and updating to the 12 room house. The house is located across the street from the post office.



1835
Original Buckhorn Baptist Church built in 1835. See pictures on this page
This is the very same church where Richard Jordan Gatling (the inventor of the famous Gatling Gun) was a member until moving to Indiana. This church has been recently modified with a youth department, social hall and chair elevator for the handicapped members.

The sanctuary is still intact with the pretty stained glass windows and curved pews, woodwork and carpentry. This is a Greek-revival and Victorian style church.

The church is known for its balcony where slaves once sat to listen to words of encouragement. These churches were known as Mt. Sinai and Mill Neck Baptist Churches, also in Como.
