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 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.
