With a variety of photographs––many previously unpublished–– accompanied by interesting and informative historical information, authors Susan M. Cabot and Michael D. Rouse take us on a delightful trip down memory lane that invites lifelong residents to look back and remember and enables those new to the area to view the communities as they once were. The year 1998 marks the county's 200th anniversary, and in celebration, the authors have worked closely with local individuals to create this rich compendium of the county's past. This volume is a tribute to two centuries of the lives of Boone Countians and pays homage to those who have received little recognition for their contribution to making the county what it is today.
