For all the tourists in Canton during the 1960s, nothing would beat this postcard souvenir of a local landmark: The Pine Crest Restaurant and Motor Lodge.
As the back of the postcard proclaims, the Pine Crest has air condition, TV and a smorgasboard on Wednesday and Thursday.
The restaurant is technically in Holly Springs but plays a large part in many a Canton resident’s memories — whether dining at the restaurant through the decades or partaking in a few karaoke nights in its later years. The building that housed the restaurant was torn down a few years ago (a package store now sits in its spot), but the motel is still alive. See the end of the post to navigate what the area looks like today.
