Newspapers, Church Minutes, and So Much More from High Point Museum!

With special thanks to our partner, High Point Museum,  Digital NC is now added to our collections. The latest items include school newspapers from William Penn High School and Griffin Junior High School in High Points, Church Minutes from the Primitive Baptist Association, The Advocate and Messenger newsletter published in Virginia, and a host of items from the Myrtle Desk Company and the Alama Furniture Company.  

Most unique in this collection is the 1910 High Point Buggy Company catalog. The catalog features a wide variety of High-Grade Buggies for customers to purchase. In addition to the Buggy catalog, High Point, known for being the Furniture Capital of the World, has produced numerous furniture catalogs, from desks to home furnishings.
