Chapel Hill, NC - History of Town Lots (1790-1930s) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: $35.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The objective of this book (like the one for Hillsborough) is to document the individual town lots for Chapel Hill. However, unlike Hillsborough, the town was not platted with hundreds of lots, all... More > the same size, in an ever expanding process. The town lots of Chapel Hill were sold for funds to build and operate the University (again showing the duality of the early mission). This book contains deed records pertaining to houses and businesses in Chapel Hill. The deeds are chained together (as best possible) to show a particular lot's history. Is every lot and piece of land covered in this book? NO. However, a very large collection is included. Is every lot traversed from 1790 to 1930? NO. Some lots have breaks, where I could not trace it. The focus is on the OLD records. It is rather easy to take a lot today and traverse back to 1930. Therefore, not every lot will be traced to 1930. Appendix sections include, utility, maps, mills, post office histories - etc.< Less

Brunswick Town and Wilmington By Baylus C. Brooks
Paperback: List Price: $9.95 $5.97 | You Save: 40%
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Brunswick Town, the Cape Fear region’s first port city, provided a deep-water port that accommodated trans-Atlantic shipping on the only easily accessible river in the colony of North Carolina.... More > Contemporary accounts stated that it was like to be a “flourishing place,” while town lot sales reflected its profitability in 1731. However, Brunswick Town was not destined to remain and its founder, Maurice Moore and his family would suffer great economic trials as a result. Brunswick Town barely lasted until the American Revolution and today, remains only a vague memory. This is a radically different interpretation of the events in the Lower Cape Fear in the early eighteenth century. An eminent historian recently commented: "Portrayal of North Carolina history as something which began at colonization then proceeded completely independent of external conditions creates an artificial temporal and spatial bubble that isn't truly representative of the operating causal forces..."< Less
