This is a carefully researched and completely rewritten version of Adelaide Fries's 1949 history that traced the Forsyth story from its Moravian beginnings through the joining of Winston and Salem and concluded with a forward look to Wake Forest College as a key to future cultural growth. The authors emphasize the contributions of the county beyond the city limits, reflecting the growing social and economic importance of the suburban and rural area in the past twenty-five years.
Originally published in 1976.
