New partner on DigitalNC, Wachovia Historical Society

Several new scrapbooks have been digitized and added to DigitalNC, courtesy of our first-time partner, the Wachovia Historical Society. These four scrapbooks are the first batch from Wachovia.

Dating from 1836 to 1941, these scrapbooks contain newspaper clippings, typed letters, photographs, church programs, manuscripts, and more, that relate to the Wachovia Historical Society and the Moravian Church in the local area. Many include information on the history of Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, and important figures in the community.

The scrapbooks also each include typed and handwritten indexes in the front. They provide a valuable look into what Moravian Church members and those who lived in the Wachovia area found important and worthy of preserving in scrapbooks.

This batch of scrapbooks represents the first materials on DigitalNC to come from the Wachovia Historical Society and we are privileged to have them as a contributing partner. To see more from Wachovia Historical Society, click here to visit their partner page or check out their website
