About this Site

This blog is a place for sharing of the historical images in the collections of the Watauga County Public Library in Boone, North Carolina.

In particular, the hope is that the fascinating collection of materials collected, preserved, and archived by the Historic Boone society, currently housed at Watauga County Library, may be shared with and made accessible to people outside of the confines of the Library building… indeed, around the world.

To the best of our knowledge, these photographs are either in the public domain or are owned by Historic Boone, which has entrusted the original materials into the keeping of Watauga County Public Library.

If you believe that you own the rights to any image contained herein, please email the Library at wataugalibrarynews – “at” … and, such rights being established, the image will be removed.

Please enjoy these fascinating glimpses back into the past of Watauga County!

Please also visit the site of the new grant-sponsored digitization partnership between Watauga County Public Library and the Watauga County Historical Association:
