  • More About This Book
Randolph County began as an agricultural community and gradually industrialized as farmers left the fields for the factories and women left their kitchens for the sewing plant. This book celebrates a panorama of 175 years of life in Randolph County through a collection of photographs primarily from its citizens. Some individuals featured in the book are more prominent than others, but all helped fill Randolph County with Southern charm, gentility, and hospitality.

The attachment to Randolph County runs deep within the veins of Lois Walls George and Paula Burson Lambert, cousins whose parents and grandparents grew up there and who descended from some of the county's first settlers. Their love for the county was born and nourished through the visits and long summer vacations they enjoyed with their grandparents. Their desire to preserve the history of the people brought about the connection with Wyner S. Phillips, a Randolph County native who also descended from early settlers. Phillips is president of the Randolph County Historical Museum, Inc.
