Thanks to our partner, the Johnston County Heritage Center, 10 yearbooks have been added to the North Carolina Yearbooks Collection.

The high schools featured in this batch include Micro High School, Benson High School, and Kenly High School. Two yearbooks of particular interest are Portals [1926] and the By-Gones [1928] both from Benson High School. They both offer a unique look into the lives of youth, schools, and communities during the 1920’s. They also feature several witty superlatives and advertisements, like the one featured below.
