Abstract:

This informative book gives the history of Wake County, North Carolina, from its beginnings in the 1700s to the time of the book's original publication in 1922, and was first presented by the North Carolina Society of Colonial Dames in America. The book first leads the reader through the region's early days, discussing the first twenty-five years through the 1830s. In this section the author shows the reader early life and thought, the giants of those days, and improvements and progress. Also included are some biographies and a section entitled "Raleigh the Capital Village." The book then leads on to the county's middle days, starting around the 1840s. Within this section the author tells about the benefactors of the county and distinguished visitors to the county. In closing the book takes a look at the county's later days, showing the progress that has been made within the county and bringing the reader into the early 1900s. At the very end is also a list of committee members of the North Carolina Society of the Colonial Dames of America at the time the book was originally published. A full name index has been added.
