AHGS Receives Donation from North Carolina Society of Historians!

Representatives of the Alleghany Historical-Genealogical Society traveled to Hickory, NC Saturday, October 11, 2008 to receive the Paul Green Multimedia Award from North Carolina Society of Historians for their memorial cookbook, “Recipes that Raised Us.”

At the annual event, NCSH presented awards in several historical and genealogical categories relating to local, regional or statewide people, places or events: History Books, Publishers, Multimedia, Journal, Newsletter, Society, Religious History Books, Newspaper & Magazine Articles, Family History Books, Historical Fiction, and Museums. The multimedia category takes in historical plays, videos, oral histories, poetry, music, websites, brochures, pamphlets, demonstrations, etc. A Presidents Award was given to the President’s personal choice of all entries that won by the unanimous decision of a distinguished panel of judges. Only one prestigious Historian of the Year award was presented this year.

The North Carolina Society of Historians was established in 1941 for the purpose of collecting, preserving and perpetuating North Carolina’s rich history; and for recognizing those persons who fulfill the society’s objectives.

As an added bonus, the NCSH chose our organization to receive their entire 2008 collection of award winning North Carolina historical books!

Mrs. Sherrill traveled to Sparta on February 12 to present the collection at our Sesquicentennial Kickoff. The collection consists of the best of the best in NC history, 59 award winning books and 39 editions of newsletters and journals.

(Editor: We are proud to accept them, and we thank the NCSH for a great addition to our public library, where everyone can enjoy them!)
