Haywood history, a picture at a time

Written by 

The Gateway Club in Waynesville is currently hosting an exhibit of the The Haywood Snapshot Project. The exhibit, recently displayed at Haywood Arts Repertory Theater, uses historic photographs to bring Waynesville’s history to life. Images, ranging from an 1886 photograph of Main Street to a picture of The Gateway Club building during its construction in 1927, are a rich sample of Haywood County’s photographic heritage.

The project was developed under the auspices of the Historic and Genealogical Society of Haywood County. It seeks to involve the community in locating, preserving and sharing irreplaceable images and stories from the past. 

The exhibition is open to the public and is free. For information call 828.456.6789 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
