Carved out of Native American land in 1817, Marion County, Tennessee, has maintained its primitive beauty. The county grew with towns such as Monteagle, Martin Springs, Sequatchie, and South Pittsburg springing up on the banks of the Tennessee River, throughout the Sequatchie Valley, and atop the Cumberland Mountains. Today, it is home to nearly 30,000 people. In this pictorial history, Marion Countys colorful and fascinating past is illustrated through over 200 vintage postcards drawn from the authors personal collection. This book was the culmination of a long-standing interest in postcards and Marion County, as well as a deep kinship with its people.

From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" can today be considered works of art. Postcard photographers traveled the length and breadth of the nation snapping photographs of busy street scenes, documenting local landmarks, and assembling crowds of local children only too happy to pose for a picture. These images, printed as postcards and sold in general stores across the country, survive as telling reminders of an important era in America's history. This fascinating new history of Muncie, Indiana, showcases more than two hundred of the best vintage postcards available.

Western Kentucky in Vintage Postcards guides residents, visitors, and history buffs alike on a virtual driving tour through Kentucky's westernmost counties to enjoy its rich history and natural beauty. Readers will discover why this is perhaps the most diverse region in the Bluegrass State with its many different geographical areas-flat lands to rolling hills and coal fields to miles of lakes. The scenic journey begins in Hopkinsville, meanders north through Madisonville to Henderson, and continues west to the Mississippi River, with stops in Murray, Mayfield, Paducah, and several small towns. Vintage postcards culled from a variety of sources highlight those things that are uniquely Western Kentucky: tobacco fields, coal mines, Confederate president Jefferson Davis, Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, farming, historical buildings and sites, floods, and dams.

When Somerset County, named in honor of Lord Baltimore's sister Lady Mary Somerset, was first established by the Colony of Maryland in 1666, it encompassed more than 16,000 square miles on the Eastern Shore, including what are today's Worcester and Wicomico Counties and part of lower Delaware. By the end of the 18th century, the county, much smaller in geography by then, had become home to more than 15,000 residents. Communities such as Crisfield, Deal Island, Princess Anne, Smith Island, and others have thrived since that time, with the industries of agriculture, seafood, and tourism sustaining the hardworking and spirited residents who have made their home in this county by the Chesapeake Bay.

Located in the rolling hills of North Carolina's Piedmont, between the Yadkin and the Catawba Rivers, Cabarrus County was once a haven of lush vegetation and wild animals. Early immigrants-mostly of German and Scotch-Irish descent-arrived with a strong pioneering spirit to carve out of this wilderness a place to call home. The rich and fertile soil was ideal for agriculture, while the shiny yellow rocks proved to be "worth their weight" when correctly identified as nuggets of gold. Today, Cabarrus County and its county seat, Concord, are considered home to more than 100,000 residents.

From an abolitionist hotbed to the home of a prestigious liberal arts college, Grinnell, Iowa, is known across the country as a "jewel of the prairie." Originally conceived as a Congregationalist utopia, Grinnell developed a reputation as a highly-educated community with a wealth of incredible architecture. It was also a turn-of-the-century industrial hub, despite a population of less than 5,000, where buggies, early automobiles, and gloves were made. The historic postcards in this book recall a community on the verge of transition, from a small agriculture-based town on the prairie to a thriving center of commerce and higher education. They provide a remarkable glimpse of the buildings that make up what is now a "Historic Commercial District" on the National Register of Historic Places. Still others are visual reminders of great buildings-both in the community and on the Grinnell College campus-that now exist only in memory.

Indiana County was little more than a collection of forests and sparse settlements when it was formed in 1803. At the center of the county lay the area that was to become the city of Indiana, a community built on land donated by George Clymer, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Over the next one hundred fifty years, the county embraced the growth of numerous settlements, farms, logging operations, small businesses, and a booming coal industry that fueled the railroads of western Pennsylvania. With scenes of rolling hills and railroads, mining towns and main streets, from Rossiter to Saltsburg, Indiana County celebrates the region's bicentennial through nearly two hundred vintage postcards from the first half of the twentieth century.
