Under Brown Mountain Lights the Beast of Blandenboro wanders this magical land where lighthouses shine on kingdoms only accessible by ferries. A Lost Colony of legends and pirates revealed in historical sites and majestic mountains with views that make us weep. The home of handmade sculptures and scrumptious cuisine. North Carolina leaves this long-time writer and artist breathless with endless surprises, including the unlikely warmth a winter walk on the beach can bring.
Like every other place in the world, this beautiful, mountainous state was built on the backs of people as these historic photos of North Carolina show. While ruggedly handsome and mystical throughout, the spellbinding truth in their eyes will tell without even a word of the daring adventures, hardships, and fun that existed in the state long before we came along. And what remains is so valuable as we have built upon the greatness they started in agriculture, industry, education, and cultivation of ideas and dreams they lived and died trying. It is with great reverence these photos are shared of our long-gone fellow North Carolinians whose lives mattered just as much as ours.
Whether we are striving to make ends meet every day or making decisions on a board of directors, remember whatever contributions we make in life matter to the next generations. How lucky we are to appreciate and remember that we once lived in this beautiful, vast open space called North Carolina. Here are 14 more historic photos of North Carolina.
