North Carolina Taproots: Courthouses Of North Carolina by Paul Shields Crane


pdf epub fb2 djvu



When Paul Shields Crane moved to North Carolina, he had an ambitious plan to visit every county. Armed with his camera, and using courthouses as a focal point, Crane developed a county-by-county tour of the state. The result, North Carolina Taproots, is a pictorial presentation of the state's hundred courthouses. The rich history of North Carolina is reflected in Crane's narrative, with a focus on historical information and current statistics. Thorough research into county names reveals the abiding influence of heroes of the Revolutionary War. Seventy-four of the one hundred courthouses are on the National Register of Historic Places, and each full-color photo reflects the artistic and cultural influences of the area.
