Very nice, clean book bound tightly with a plastic comb enabling it to lie flat. Only faults are a very small light stain to back cover, a tiny closed tear at bottom back edge and a small flat crease to upper front corner. The majority of the text is historical with a few beloved recipes included. Among the many varied topics are these: town's early history, a delightful summer resort, the Blue Ridge Hotel, White Sulphur Springs Hotel, early funeral practices, Poore's Store, the railroad, Christmas in Mount Airy, Old Reuben and the Fire Department, and much more. Family names represented include Goad, Jefferson Davis Smith, Byrd, Sparger, Woltz, Wright, Smith. Sydnor, Minick, Callaway, Thomas, Blackburn, Belton. Greenwood, King, Dean, Loftis, Lowry, Brower, Hennis, Ashby, Merritt, Fawcett, Barber, Martin, Folger, Lovell, and Pruett. Measures 6"x9" and 190 pages.
