The great- granddaughter of Pleasant Daniel Gold (founder of the Wilson Daily Times and Zion’s Landmark) was visiting today from Tennessee, so I poked around for some information about him and came across two photographs of the original WDT building. The images are a part of North Carolina State University Libraries’ Rare and Unique Digital Collections. and there are more pictures of Wilson County architecture and agriculture at their site. According to the metadata, P.D. Gold started the the Wilson Daily Times from this building in 1896 and ran it for two years before handing it over to his brother, John Gold, to run while he moved to Greensboro to start the Jefferson Standard Life Insurance Company. The building was probably destroyed soon after this picture was taken in 1959.
