New Partner, Cherryville Historical Museum, and Additional Issues of The Eagle Now Available on DigitalNC

Thanks to funding from the State Library of North Carolina’s LSTA Grant and our newest partner, Cherryville Historical Museum, addition issues of The Eagle (Cherryville, N.C.) from 1942 to 1956 are now available on our website. The articles from this batch primarily focus on World War II, providing updates on local citizens in the military, battles, directives from the federal government, and advertisements for war fundraising efforts.

The Cherryville Historical Museum is located in Cherryville, North Carolina. Their mission is to preserve, protect, and exhibit the city’s history. The museum features several exhibits on the Cherryville’s history from the early 1800s to today. Some of the museum’s exhibits include toys made by Lloyd Stroup, the old jail, farm equipment, ladies wear, the potato house, and much more.
