The Lincoln County Historical Association has released its 2005 calendar.
The 2005 edition is the Associationâ€™s 16th calendar since 1990 and contains another set of historical photographs from Lincoln Countyâ€™s past.
Representing Lincolnton, east Lincoln and west Lincoln, the photographs cover topics like early education, mill villages, conservation projects, social history, African-American history, architecture, family history, economics and early local politics.
Included in the 2005 calendar are photographs of the Kiser family, Leonard family, Lomax Lodge, D.C. King Wilkinson, Brevard Nixon at Catawba Springs Spa, Glenn Mills Baseball Team, Lincolntonâ€™s Post Office Mural Conservation Project, Rhodes-Rhyne Mill employees, the Cherry family at Unity Presbyterian Church cemetery, Wampum Mill Village, Forney Nance and the Lincolnton High School graduating class of 1909.
Several individuals and groups helped in the creation of the calendar by lending photographs â€” Barry Long, Lomax Lodge, Davidson College archives, Glenda Noles, Pris Mauney, Mary Lowery, Phillip Leonard, Marshall Ramsey and Mercer and Peggy Simmons.
The Association has included an In Memoriam page in the back of the calendar in honor and memory of Joe A. Leonard and Sarah Yoder, both longtime supporters and members of the organization.
All proceeds from the sale of the calendars help support the operations, programs and projects of the Lincoln County Historical Association and the Lincoln County Museum of History.
