Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738514659, Paperback)Located in North Carolinaís rolling piedmont, Cleveland County was formed from portions of Lincoln and Rutherford Counties in 1841. Since the countyís days as the leading cotton producer in western North Carolina, residents have gently changed their ways of life. Both agriculture and textiles are retreating into the distant past, but the impact both have had on Clevelandís towns and residents is not to be forgotten. ÝÝThis volume, the second in the Images of America series about the area, includes vintage photographs and postcards from the late 19th to the mid-20th century, beginning with an 1879 snapshot of an early educatorsí gathering. Prominent families who guided the county on its course make appearances, including Governor O. Max Gardner and his wife, Faye Webb Gardner; the W.J. Arey family, operators of the oldest family business in the county; and the O.Z. Morgan family, pioneers in the development of agriculture extension in North Carolina. Leaders of Clevelandís textile industry are also highlighted, including the families of John R. Dover of Shelby and C.E. Neisler of Kings Mountain. ÝÝ
