Lincolnton is a city in Lincoln County, NC within the Charlotte Metropolitan area, just northwest of Charlotte, and just an hour from the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the city of Asheville. Lincolnton has a total area of 8.7 square miles.

Below: The 'United We Stand' street mural is meant to reach not only the African American community but every minority living in Lincolnton. Its aim is to promote unity and racial equality. Because it is obviously in the middle of a road, and quite long in length, Karen Duquette was unable to get a decent photo.

Standing on Main Street up above another street, the two RV Gypsies enjoyed a view of the Carolina Diner mural on a wall. They did not get up close to the mural, but they believe they spotted Clark Gable, Spock and Captain Kirk, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Elvis Presley, Charlie Chan, and Louie Armstrong. They were not sure who the other patrons in the mural are.

The two RV Gypsies stood on Main Street in Lincolnton, North Carolina, and looked down at part of the Maria H. Cloninger Rail Trail - a 1.6 mile paved trail. What really caught their attention was the train mural on one side of the trail and smaller window murals on the other side of the trail.

Below: Pots on Parade: A public art and tourism initiative organized by the Downtown Development Association of Lincolnton.  The two RV Gypsies photographed nine life-sized vases that were on display along East Main Street. Each vase had a different face on each side of the vase, except the first one shown by the sign below. It was the same on both sides.
