Images from the Oliver Nestus Freeman Round House Museum added to DigitalNC

Detail from Round House Museum Scrapbook 4, page A second batch of images from the Oliver Nestus Freeman Round House Museum of Wilson, NC, has been added to DigitalNC.

Many of the images document civic clubs and sororities in Wilson. Included is an image of Booker T. Washington with the Wilson Men’s Club.

We’re also pleased to present four very fragile scrapbooks from the Museum. The first three are full of portraits and family scenes. Although the photos are labeled with a good number of first names or familial titles, we have very little definitive information about the people inside. (If you know more, contact us.) The fourth scrapbook has a collection of pressed leaves.

Forty-five photographs from the museum are now available online, in addition to a number of other documents and items related to Freeman and others in Wilson. You can view all of the items here.
