Description
The town of Wilson owes its success to the prosperity of Robert E. Lee Wilson. An orphan at 15, Wilson was a small-scale farmer who invested his savings wisely in the 1890s and turned a 2,100-acre swamp into one of the largest cotton plantations in the world. The cotton-growing R.E. Lee Wilson Co. and other Wilson-owned businesses became the cornerstone of the town's economy.
