Ever wondered what Carolina Circle Mall was like before it was built? I have the answer.
According to the book Dateline: Greensboro, a dentist named Doctor T. Edgar Sikes owned a cattle farm on the future site of Carolina Circle Mall.
I think in the early '70s, Edgar sold his farm to the Carolina Circle developers.
I have an aeral picture of his farm taken in 1965 in that book, but due to copyright, I'm unable to post it. That picture also shows Cone Boulevard ending at US-29 instead dead ending a mile east.
