Issues of the Laurel Leaf Now Online!

Thanks to our new partner, Macon County Public Library, several issues of the Franklin High School yearbook are now online! These issues of the Laurel Leaf span the years 1926-1969.  These yearbooks are the first from Macon County and help expand our yearbook coverage of schools in the western part of North Carolina and shed light on what high school looked like in Franklin, NC during the middle of the 20th century.
