Carl and Betty Hinson, proprietors of The Rib Room restaurant in Wilson, met President Jimmy Carter when he visited Wilson in the late 1970s and attended a luncheon at their eatery. Carter autographed the photo for the Hinsons several days after returning to Washington. The Wilson Times is publishing historical photos of Wilson County life and landmarks in this space each day. To share your snapshots, email the picture and caption to Lori Parrish at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Remember When” or bring it to the Times office at 2001 Downing St. SW during regular business hours.
