Old photographs offer subjective and evocative evidence of the way we lived and worked in years past. Images of America: Mocksville shares the photographic story of the development of the town of Mocksville and its people to the mid-1900s. Named the seat of newly created Davie County in 1839, the town of Mocksville, originally known as Mocks Old Field, existed as early as the Revolutionary War. Photographs support documentary evidence of various trades as well as agricultural pursuits. Not all buildings or homes survive a town's growth, and Mocksville provides evidence of the passing parade of homes that did not survive. History comes alive as we rediscover and share old photographs and contemplate what they divulge of past times and lives.
