A “history harvest” -Braswell library- February 25. 12:00 – 4:00

You are invited to bring pictures, documents, home movies or memorabilia related to working at the mill or living in the village. Help identify people and places in historic photos of Rocky Mount Mills, share your memories and stories in oral history recording booths. Experts will digitize your photographs, documents, and home video formats  (8mm, Super8, 16mm) and videos/DVD (VHS, Hi-8,) to add to the digital collection being built with Braswell Library. PLEASE share this information with everyone you know on social media so it reaches those who need to be there. Thank you! And thank you to Elijah Gaddis, Project Manager with Communityhistories.org. and Capital Broadcasting, our heroes in this history harvest.
