Alamance County, situated in the lush landscape of North Carolina’s Piedmont, has played an important role in the state’s history, from its early participation in the American Revolution to its continued contributions to North Carolina’s growing industrial market. For generations, residents and visitors have enjoyed the pleasant combination of the county’s pastoral scenery and the commercial conveniences of Burlington.
In this volume readers will experience their hometowns as never before, viewing Alamance from the late
nineteenth century to the 1960s. Alamance County brings to life many of the old ways: scenes of local general stores, where city elders met to discuss the town’s political issues and gossip of the day; snapshots of schoolchildren posing proudly in front of their one-room schoolhouses; images of the county’s churches and many Victorian homes, their grand facades matched only by the elegance of their interiors; photographs capturing the excitement of Sunday excursions in the country and the commotion of the Centennial Parade down Burlington’s crowded Main Street; and pictures and portraits of Alamance County natives–soldiers, merchants, government officials, and everyday citizens.
