The word 'Oriental' has been banned from use in Federal law. Should the town of Oriental follow suit and change its name?
Yes. We should change the name of our town to "Shipwreck." We would become Shipwreck, North Carolina.
No. We've been the town of Oriental since 1886.
Yes. The town was founded as "Smith's Creek." Those Midyette family members never should have changed the name. Let's go back to our traditional roots and again be Smith's Creek.
