PBS to feature Murray’s Mill as “One Tank Trip” on Carolina Impact this Tuesday
A special feature on Murray’s Mill will soon air on PBS Charlotte. The “One Tank Trip” segment, on the network’s show Carolina Impact, highlights local day trip destinations that can be easily accessed within the Charlotte area.
The episode is scheduled to air on WTVI Tuesday, April 18 at 8 p.m. and will feature the Murray’s Mill historic district, managed by the Historical Association of Catawba County.
PBS television Producer Russ Hunsinger visited Murray’s Mill in September 2016 during the 32nd-annual Harvest Folk Festival to capture the excitement that surrounds this beloved historic site.
Carolina Impact, hosted by Amy Burkett, is a weekly news show that looks at the issues, people, and places that play a part in the Charlotte area, according to the WTVI website.
Carolina Impact has featured One Tank Trip segments in the past that have highlighted Mystery Hill, Linville Caverns, Seagrove Potteries, the Charlotte Curling Association, Tiger World, and the Reed Gold Mine – all of which are settled throughout North Carolina.
Murray’s Mill Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is made up of multiple structures that created a vibrant domestic and industrial community during the 19th and 20th centuries. Run by three generations of the Murray family, who halted operations in 1967, the structures and surrounding park land form the last historic milling complex remaining in the country.
