Edgecombe County is a unique combination of beautiful pastoral scenery and strong, interesting
people. Communities like Pinetops, Whitakers, Speed, Leggett, and Conetoe provide an excellent insight into the struggles and triumphs of traditional
American small towns. In this highly anticipated
second volume, you will explore the social identity of Edgecombe County by taking visual tours of several
historic neighborhoods, schools, and churches. As with any successful region, Edgecombe County's greatest resource is its people, for the area has provided a wealth of talented citizens to the political arena, military battlefronts, the playing fields of professional sports, and the artistic community. This collection of images also honors the countless men and women who persevered through the county's periods of war, depression, and natural disaster and continued to support one another in times of need and adversity.
Monika S. Fleming, author of Echoes of Edgecombe County, has assembled another collection of fascinating images that remembers the Edgecombe County of days past. This compilation of over 200 photographs, many previously unpublished, has been taken from the local history museum, the large library collection, and from private family albums. Edgecombe County Volume II will instruct, entertain, and delight readers of all ages.
