Overview


Covering over 661 square miles and listed as the fourth most populous county in the Tar Heel State, Cumberland County possesses a unique heritage, one marked by fascinating stories of military action dating from the American Revolution to the present, colorful local personalities, and participation in America's first political endeavors and the state's early government. The county's hard-working people, from the farmer to the merchant to the corporate executive, have helped to forge North Carolina's identity as a progressive New South leader. This volume of over 180 vintage photographs, drawings, maps, and portraits will take you on an enchanting visual journey into the past, showing the Cumberland County of yesteryear, from the metropolis of Fayetteville to the county's smaller communities, such as Linden, Godwin, and Wade, during the early part of the twentieth century. Cumberland County allows you to experience firsthand the early cityscapes around the growing county, the evolution of the dirt roads into busy highways, the different modes of transportation upon the rivers and railways, the early businesses and developing industries, both rural and urban, the religious and educational institutions that dotted the landscape, the county's longstanding military traditions at Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base, and most importantly, the people who made this county, from the famous to the everyday citizens.
