Named more than 200 years ago for heroic Revolutionary War captain John Stokes, Stokes County, North Carolina, is an area rich in history, Southern charm, and natural beauty. Primarily an agricultural community, Stokes County's farming roots date back hundreds of years to the early generations of settlers. The county is beautifully situated on the edge of the Piedmont Foothills, with the breathtaking Sauratown Mountains resting entirely within its border. Stokes County boasts a multi-cultural heritage, consisting of British, German, Scotch Irish, and Welsh nationalities. Though the county is still known for its tobacco farms and picturesque foothills, it is in the midst of change, as a result of the fading tobacco industry and suburban growth in the Piedmont. The citizens of Stokes County have become more and more dedicated to preserving the history of their county, as is evident in this engaging pictorial volume.
