Known for its charming communities and picturesque landscapes, a colorful patchwork quilt of farms, fields, and small towns, Stanly County possesses a rich Southern heritage, one forged by its dedication to agricultural development and small-town life. As urban sprawl rapidly encroaches on North Carolina's Piedmont region, it is vital that we remember and preserve our county's history, providing present and future generations a chance to connect to their ancestors' past, one that is truly special with the people of the Tar Heel State. This volume takes you on a visual journey into the Stanly County of yesteryear, where you will stroll through Albemarle's early downtown district, full of horses, wagons, and turn-of-the-century storefronts; where you will explore some of the county's budding rural communities, such as Oakboro, Badin, and Norwood; where you will experience the places in which the people worked, played, and lived, such as the early industrial mills, the farms, the one-room schoolhouses, and early businesses; and where you will meet some of the county's families and individuals, both prominent and everyday, such as a variety of soldiers, politicians, community leaders, farmers, merchants, and athletes.
