  • More About This Book
Based solely on vintage postcards, this important new book is a unique addition to the small number of works devoted to the history of Morgan County. Captured here in more than 220 commercially produced and personal real-photo postcards is a chronicle of the past 100 years in Martinsville (the county seat), Mooresville, Morgantown, Waverly, and other communities that have been imprinted on the local landscape. This visual record showcases the people, neighborhoods, schools, businesses, recreation sites, and events that shaped Morgan County—including the famous mineral water sanitariums, landmark buildings and bridges, favorite fishing holes and resorts, and disasters such as the 1913 flood of the White River.
