Note of Thanks and New Issues of The Norlina Headlight

On this day of thanks, the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to our partners and site visitors for another phenomenal year. However you decide to observe the fourth Thursday in November, the NCDHC hopes that your day is filled with great food, remembrance, reflection and community.


Thanks to funding from the State Library of North Carolina’s LSTA Grant and our partner, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for additional issues of The Norlina Headlight which are now available to view on our website. This batch, spanning 1925 to 1927, brings DigitalNC’s total number of issues to 401.

If you’re looking for a new recipe to add to your table this week, the November 18, 1927 Thanksgiving issue of The Norlina Headlight has you covered. Fans of pineapple and ham on pizza should try Nellie Maxwell’s baked pineapple and ham recipe. Simply take a slice of baked pineapple and serve it with a helping of baked ham. If you prefer to have a sauce, however, Maxwell suggests mixing pineapple juice, ham liquor, and a bit of flour together to serve with your baked ham.
