NEWS FLASH: On April 15, 2015, The Carter-Simmons House was added to the National Register of Historic Places. This is an important milestone in helping to raise funds and obtain grants to support the restoration, upkeep and protection of this historically significant structure.

 

The founding purpose of The Cool Water Historic Foundation, Inc. is to conduct a meticulous colonial restoration of the Solomon Carter House in Duplin County, North Carolina. The house was built by Solomon Carter (1725-1809), who fought in the Revolutionary War for the North Carolina Militia. In 1850, the house was purchased by Amos Simmons whose descendants lived there until 1965. The historic value of the house lends itself to archaeological studies and historical research.

With the goal of creating a site of state and national historic significance and local pride, the Solomon Carter House and an acre of land on which it stands were purchased by a direct descendant of Solomon Carter, Cynthia Carter Hite Content. The Foundation will seek funding for the restoration and upkeep of the House through grants, endowments and donations to support the Foundation's endeavors for the benefit of future generations. At the project’s completion, the House and surrounding property will be made available as a local historic landmark for visits and functions by the general public, schools and civic groups. The Cool Water Foundation and its members look forward to working in close cooperation with historic societies and local communities.

The Carter House was built three stories high with upstairs and downstairs porches that faced the expansive farmland to the north. The roof was lowered in 1853 by one of the subsequent owners. We hope that some of the many Carter descendants will be amongst the first to join us in supporting the restoration of this marvelous example of early American architecture to its former glory.
