About the Author

With help from Belmont Abbey College, Gaston County Library, the University of North Carolina, and other archives, Gaston resident Piper Peters Aheron, author of four celebrated Carolina histories, has created a unique, visual roadmap winding through the treasured past. More than 200 rustic portraits of clay main streets, horse-drawn buggies, and water-powered mills allow readers, both young and old, to revisit the optimism and the hardships, the architecture and the landscape of a city and county intricately linked to one another. Whether a lifelong county resident or a newcomer to the city, each reader will find Gastonia and Gaston County to be a charming journey down memory lane and a delightful addition to any family library.
