More Description

Situated in North Carolina's historic piedmont region, Lincoln County possesses some of the Tar Heel State's most picturesque scenery: the shoreline of Lake Norman on its eastern boundary, the winding path of the Catawba River, and the rolling foothills across the countryside. Within this beautiful setting, early pioneering families established homes
and communities as early as the 1700s, and since that time, the county has grown and developed, both socially and economically, yet has been able to maintain its small-town charm and character. This volume, containing over 200 black-and-white images, invites readers to experience a Lincoln County of decades and centuries past, a time marked by frontier spirit, dusty main streets, early merchants
who carried all the necessities, and a slower pace of life. Lincoln County explores the personal side of the county's history, showcasing everyday life in Lincolnton and the smaller rural communities, such as Pumpkin Center, Triangle, Iron Station, Lowesville, and Denver. From parades and farmers' day celebrations in downtown Lincolnton, to group portraits of turn-of-the-century children and athletes at various early schoolhouses, such as the Mary Wood School and S. Ray Lowder School, to scenes of troops leaving for a variety of wartime service, these images document the everyday struggles, challenges, and achievements that Lincoln Countians faced and endured over the years.
