Several photographs newly uploaded this week depict the Daniel Boone Hotel, formerly a central point in Downtown Boone, local homes, and a scene from the 1949 celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Watauga County (more to come in the future!).

The newly-added photos may be viewed by clicking the tabs ABOVE or TO THE RIGHT entitled “Historic Buildings” and “The 1949 Centennial of Watauga County.”

    Photograph #9 is David Jones “DJ” Cottrell standing in front of the old bookstore at Appalachian State Teacher’s College (ASTC). He was the father of Howard Cottrell, the subject of the preceding photograph.

    We are seeking information on Harmon geneaology and would like to contact Terry Harmon. My husband’s great grandfather was James Monroe Harmon. We know about the Harmon genealogy, but we can’t get a copy of the book here in Nevada. Thank you.

      I am afraid that I do not know much about genealogical research personally, but we do have some resources and contact people (genealogical researchers) on file – as well as Terry Harmon’s book – at Watauga County Public Library. I have just found out that there is a Facebook back for Watauga Genealogy ( – you may wish to look around and post there. Also, Mr. Harmon has aided in identifying pictures on this site – I’ll send your comment on to the public site, and maybe you all con get in touch to collaborate!

    In the identifying caption for this photo the name “Earleen Pritchard” should be corrected. She is Earleen Pritchett, wife of Prof. Leo K. Pritchett.
