Masonic Picnics in Davie County

More historic photographs of Masonic Picnics have been added to the Digital Davie exhibit on DigitalNC. The first annual Masonic Picnic was held in 1884, and over the years the picnic has raised funds to support educational opportunities for local students, Davie Training School, and the Oxford Orphanage. Some photographs from Digital Davie relating to Masonic picnics depict prominent politicians from North Carolina, such as Governors Charles Aycock and Clyde Hoey and Senators Sam Ervin and Jesse Helms.

Items in Digital Davie are shared by the Davie County Public Library.
