Journey into Johnston County - Goldsboro to Princeton in Photos

Posted by Duke Homestead on Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Philip's walk out of Goldsboro began with a new experience - morning traffic.

Very quickly, however, he was out into the countryside and things only got more and more beautiful. 

Arriving in Johnston County, Philip and the support team found lunch waiting for them thanks to the Johnston County Visitors Bureau. Philip had walked 8 miles that morning and had quite a few more to go, so lunch really hit the spot. 

He walked the last three miles into Princeton with one of his close friends who traveled down just for the occasion. Princeton may be a small town but it has a lot of character. 

The Mayor and some of Princeton's veterans were waiting to meet Philip and they had a very big surprise for him. May 16th was declared Philip Brown Day!

That night, Philip and the support team were hosted by Princeton United Methodist Church.
