Additional Finer Carolina Scrapbook from Asheboro now Online

Randolph County Public Library has contributed an additional Finer Carolina scrapbook to the others currently on DigitalNC. This scrapbook, from 1955, is similar to the others in this series. It includes photographs of the community service during that year’s Finer Carolina campaign – beautification and cleanup activities as well as social events like parades, plays, and contests. A miniature train, the Asheboro Flyer, was also installed.

You can view all of the Finer Carolina scrapbooks from Randolph County on DigitalNC.
