Beadle to speak on Haywood history Oct. 17

Written by 

Haywood County writer Michael Beadle will give a program on Haywood County history at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 17, at the Haywood County Public Library in Waynesville.

The program includes a slide show of rare photographs from Haywood County’s past, interactive discussion, and a question-and-answer session on Haywood County’s history. The program includes information on the coming of the railroad and industry to the heyday of hotels and resorts, to the families and events that have shaped its mountain communities and towns.

The presentation will be held in the downstairs auditorium of the library. Refreshments will be served. The program is part of the Sunday Concert Series, a year-long, once-a-month series of free concerts and lectures available to the public, co-sponsored by the Haywood County Arts Council and the Friends of the Haywood County Library.

Beadle is the co-author of Haywood County: Portrait of a Mountain Community as well as the author of two recently published Images of America books: Haywood County and Waynesville (the latter written with Peter Yurko). After spending the past several years researching, gathering materials, and writing about Haywood County as part of the bicentennial celebrations for Haywood County and Waynesville, Beadle has been helping to organize the Haywood Snapshot Project, which seeks to save, share, and sustain Haywood County’s historic photo collections for future generations.
