Overview


Over the past 150 years, Forsyth County, North

Carolina, has experienced much growth and change.

With this unprecedented new photographic history, readers

are invited to take a memorable jaunt through yesteryear,

back to the days when farming villages dotted the county

and the automobile was still a thing of the future.

The over 200 vintage images collected together in this

volume were drawn from the Frank Jones Collection of the

Forsyth County Library, as well as from private collections.

The work focuses on the smaller communities of

Clemmons, Kernersville, Pfafftown, Lewisville, Rural Hall,

and Tobaccoville, bringing many rare images into public

view. Forsyth County includes images of citizens from all

walks of life and provides glimpses into their daily activities,

from sports and recreation to work, education, and religion.

Enhanced by the insightful text provided by author

Cindy Casey and the members of the Forsyth County

Genealogical Society, the images included in this volume

truly capture the spirit of the people of Forsyth County.

Teaching us about the past and inspiring stories of days

gone by, this book will no doubt become a treasured

addition to the personal libraries of residents and visitors for

years to come.
