Visit the burial place of Thomas Kilgore, Robertson County’s first white settler, who journeyed here on foot at age 63 to claim 640 acres of land in what was then North Carolina. A true pioneer, Kilgore weathered many hardships that are unimaginable today — and lived to be 107 years old. The stones in this cemetery date back over 200 years, marking the graves of some of the area’s other original settlers.
