Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Aberdeen was settled by Scottish immigrants who moved up the Cape Fear River from the North Carolina coast. Before the railroad, the region consisted of small farms and a single church. The arrival of the Raleigh and Augusta Railroad in the mid-1870s was the first major impetus for growth in and around Aberdeen. Soon thereafter, the lumber industry expanded and naval stores were established. This advancement contributed to the growth and success of Aberdeen as a major rail and commercial center. In the 20th century, this growing community underwent development and became a popular shopping destination featuring a vibrant and historic downtown commercial district. Aberdeen Lake provides recreational and social activities and is an integral part of the public parks system. Aberdeen shares the remarkable history of a community that has grown and prospered in the North Carolina Sandhills.
