Overview


Nestled between Pilot Mountain and the Blue Ridge

Mountains, Yadkin County, North Carolina, is a beautiful region inhabited by energetic, hardworking

Americans, descendants of the pioneers who settled there over two hundred years ago. A rural setting that is close to major metropolitan areas, the county's special appeal is its unique way of incorporating change while preserving its heritage and family values. Yadkin County: The First One Hundred Years will be enjoyed by older generations as a trip down memory lane; appreciated by younger generations as a glimpse of an era when life was harder, but perhaps simpler; and treasured by residents and visitors of all ages. It graciously

reminds us of the importance of learning history to help us understand our past and succeed in the future as we deal with the computer age and move toward the twenty-first century.

Meet the Author


Local historian and writer Frances H. Casstevens has collected more than two hundred photographs from the archives of the Yadkin County Historical & Genealogical

Society and from local family albums, and combined them with concise, compelling captions to tell the story of Yadkin County from 1850 to 1950. From old photographs of log cabins to portraits of wealthy families in front of white-columned mansions, from snapshots of farming families to group shots of 1930s and 1940s sports teams, the images presented here bring Yadkin County's first one hundred years to life.
