New Photos from the Benson Museum of Local History

A new batch of photographs from the Benson Museum of Local History has been uploaded to DigitalNC. Many of these enlarged photographs feature prominent members of the Benson community throughout the years. Whether formal or informal, these portraits let viewers see the faces of the individuals who played important roles in the town, and some show quite a bit of their personalities as well!

Another theme in this batch of photos is the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad that ran through Benson, and was later known as the Seaboard Coast Line. The photographs range in time from the early days of the railroad in the early 1900s up through more modern times with portraits of workers.
