Arrowhead and Heritage Walk

The Arrowhead and Heritage Walk are located in front of Old Main.

ARROWHEAD

The Indian head on the front of this great stone arrowhead,
has become a symbol of the spirit of the University.

- 1959 Indianhead

The Arrowhead was built by J. (Joseph) Hampton Rich (1874-1949), a newspaper owner from Mocksville, N.C., who erected 358 stone monuments across America from 1913 to 1938, according to Everett Gary Marshall, his biographer.

“Mr. Rich,” Marshall writes, “was a Good Roads advocate. The initial objective was to bring public sentiment to bear on state legislators to improve highways. He'd convince town leaders that what the town needed was a Daniel Boone marker. Money would be raised, he'd build the marker and off he'd go to the next town.”

Rich also raised monuments to other American heroes, including Davey Crockett, Abraham Lincoln and Cherokee Chief Sequoia. According to Marshall, UNCP’s marker has a "Sequoia tablet" on one side and a buffalo trail marker on the other. “The Buffalo Trail marker is supposedly there to identify original Buffalo traces that were then used by Native Americans and early colonists, that eventually became routes for modern highways,” Marshall said. “The UNCP marker has been registered in our database as monument no. 136. That is, I have documented 136 original sites, of which 47 still survive with a monument and/or marker.”

The Arrowhead was constructed in April 1933. It was originally located on the Quad between Old Main and the former Sampson Hall. It has been rebuilt. In November 1985, it was moved directly in front of Old Main where it rests today.
