Kings Mountain History Captured in New Book By Staff Writer - 10/01/2008 Kings Mountain Echo
Author Stacy Trevenon’s new tome, Kings Mountain, features rare photographs and documents assembled from private collections, the San Mateo County Historical Association archives, the Woodside Community Museum, and from Kings Mountain historian Kenneth
The new book chronicles Kings Mountain’s past and highlights living history, such as the Art Fair which started in 1963. The annual fair supports the Kings Mountain volunteer fire brigade, its award winning local school, and numerous community groups and activities.
Author Stacy Trevenon hopes Kings Mountain "will stand to remind readers of those compelling stories about this community: its self sufficiency, plucky perseverance and resourceful compassion.”
Highlights of Kings Mountain:
• Rough-and-tumble sawyers, genteel dairy fanners, ghost towns, subdivisions, summer cabins, schools, and storied hermits
• The influx of sawmills that sprang up in the l850s.
• Early entrepreneurs Frank and Honora King
The author plans to donate a percentage of profits from the book's sales to the Kings Mountain community.
The book is available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
