Carved out of fertile farmland along the border of the Carolinas in 1787, Robeson County is North Carolina's largest county, spanning 948 square miles. The county is called "The State of Robeson" not only because of its size, but because of its fierce independence and self-reliance. Unique in its equally balanced tri-racial population, Robeson County has residents that are Native American, African American, and white. Over the centuries, these people have worked together to create a culturally diverse community.

The bulk of this collection of early Robeson County postcards was assembled by author and historian K. Blake Tyner and his wife, Bess. Tyner has also delved into both public and private postcard collections in order to illustrate the county's rich history. Serving as curator of the Robeson County History Museum, he demonstrates his belief that the chief role of the historian is the collection, documentation, and dissemination of our heritage.
