Visitors to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro may want to take a side trip to Seagrove, North Carolina, also known as Jugtown.
The small town of Seagrove has been home to internationally known pottery for many years. Blessed with large deposits of surface clay, the area has supported communities of potters since well before English settlements in the mid-18th century. As the demand for utilitarian pottery and whiskey jugs lessened, the area's potters developed new traditions of decorative art pottery.
Seagrove is located about 15 mi/24 km south of Asheboro. For more information about the area, visit http://www.heartofnorthcarolina.com/things-to-do/index.htm/?category=Seagrove+Pottery.
