NC Dixie Pride Store Vandalized, Owner Believes He Was Targeted With a ‘Hate Crime’


Harmon’s Dixie Pride, a historic building located at 471 W. King St. in downtown Boone, was vandalized with spray paint in the early hours of Saturday morning in an attack owner Bradford Harmon felt was akin to a hate crime.

“Obama 2012” was tagged across the side of the building, but Harmon said he was was more disturbed by the graffiti across the right front window of the building, which contained obscene language visible from King St.

Harmon’s Dixie Pride, whose building once housed the second President of Appalachian State University, offers civil war clothing and supplies and historical photographs as well as guns and ammo. The store flies the Gadsden Flag and the Rebel Flag and is covered in Confederate signs and memorabilia.
