New from Arcadia Publishing and local authors Nick Breedlove and Lynn Hotaling is Jackson County, featuring a contrast of photos “then & now.”
Jackson County was created in 1851 by a special act of the North Carolina legislature and was named in honor of Andrew Jackson. Known for its lofty peaks and spectacular scenery, it is home to Western Carolina University and borders the Blue Ridge Parkway and Cherokee Indian Reservation.
Breedlove shares “I am glad our modern accompaniments to old photos allow people to take a walk through time and see how the area has changed over the years. In publishing this book, we preserve the rich, cultural heritage preserved in photographs of our area for years to come.”
All author royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to the Jackson County Historical Society.
