New Architectural Photographs from Rockingham Community College

Glencoe School in New Bethel Township, Rockingham County; photograph taken in 1980.

200 more slides from Rockingham Community College’s architecture slide collection have been digitized and added to DigitalNC. The slides show early architecture around Rockingham County, including houses, barns, farms, schools, banks, mills, and tobacco factories. Taken in the early 1980s, these photographs include multiple exterior as well as interior views of the buildings. Some of buildings still stand today and others no longer exist, but location, owners’ names, and building dates are included in the descriptions of the photographs.

You can learn more about these slides and the architecture depicted  in the Guide to the Early Rockingham County Architecture Slide Collection. See more from Rockingham Community College on the contributor page and learn more on their website.
