Overview


This humorous and historical compilation of anecdotes and vignettes is a valuable selection of Helen Arthur-Cornett's best work from her tenure as a writer for the Charlotte Observer and offers readers, whether "old-timers" or newcomers to the area, a warm and informative perspective on the history and folklore of Cabarrus County, North Carolina.

We meet a delightful cast of characters whose stories offer a glimpse into the inner workings of a small town and tell of a truly independent way of life. Jacob Shinn discovering gold in a cotton field; the death of "Little Miss Stonewall;" the legend of Hamby Hill; these are just some of the stories that bring the history of the county to life.

Spanning over a century of Concord's most memorable characters and events, this delightful collection is sure to inform and entertain, while at the same time, preserving the valuable work of Helen Arthur-Cornett and the history she seeks to protect and share.
