Description


The central Piedmont town of Kernersville, North Carolina, grew up around the intersection of two humble colonial roads and now boasts a history spanning more than 230 years. It was here that George Washington visited William Dobson's tavern in 1791 and the Great Storm of 1893 nearly decimated the fledgling town. Local authors Mike Marshall and Jerry Taylor recount the tale of the 1912 fire that destroyed what had once been Kernersville's largest tobacco factory, and they bask in the glory of the resort at Dunlap's Mineral Springs, a local hot spot during the Roaring Twenties. Told with passion and nostalgia, these and other fascinating stories compose a veritable time capsule of Kernersville history that will delight both casual readers and history buffs.
