Overview
After the publication of Images of America: Granville County in 2002, author Lewis Bowling was approached by numerous residents who owned vintage photographs and wished their treasures could have been included. Rather than simply regretting the absence of these images, Lewis Bowling has compiled a second, brilliant volume to showcase these never-before-seen photographs and postcards. Granville County Revisited is a fantastic companion to Granville County. The second volume includes classic photographs of the Granville County Courthouse, Hall's Drug Store, Oxford College, Creedmoor High School, Camp Butner, Abram's Plains, and many other Granville County landmarks. With over 200 vintage black-and-white photographs, the book explores Oxford, Creedmoor, Butner, Stovall, and other surrounding communities. Every page reveals another aspect of the evolution of Granville County, its buildings, streets, and people. The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.collections and family albums, with detailed descriptions of the county. This book's singular quality will delight longtime residents and newcomers alike, while assisting the area by preserving its history for future generations.
