Wondering where the Weant wall went
The NCDOT purchased her house and front yard in 2010, and Weant was forced to find another place to live during the summer.
This past July when Weant arrived in Blowing Rock, she discovered that thieves had dismantled a stone wall on the remaining portion of her wooded lot on Trillium Lane, just off of Skyland Drive.
“They must have stolen the wall sometime during the winter,” Weant said.
“My husband and I had Ronnie Pitts and his father build it around 1984,” she said.
According to Weant, her house was demolished this past April as part of the highway widening project conducted by NCDOT.
She claims that articles from her home, including a large chestnut mantle, were taken before it was demolished and that flower beds on her remaining lot were also stolen.
“The DOT bought the house, but not the wall,” Weant said. “I am just so sick about it.”
Weant said that she has contacted the Blowing Rock Police Department about the matter and that they are looking into it.
