Filming of River Town

Bryan Avery, a film-maker and local historian, has recreated the pre-civil war days of “how it was” in Harnett County, North Carolina, in the series of independent film shorts, River Town. The fascinating series of videos were produced locally, with local residents portraying members of the community in that period of time. Enjoy this interesting portrayal of our local history!
