Crooks Corner Chapel Hill print from watercolor by Janet Francoeur, Crooks Corner. In 1951, at that intersection, Rachel Crook was murdered and the case was never solved. Since then, the Crook’s building has served as a taxi stand, bait & tackle shop, pool hall and for years stood deserted. In 1978, Cam Hill (Chapel Hill native & former Town Council Member) remodeled the dilapidated building and opened a barbecue house calling it Crook’s Corner in Rachel’s honor.
