Apropos for National Humor Month, DocSouth’s April Highlight features, “19th Century Student Shenanigans at UNC.” These antebellum tales of mischief and mockery are good for a chuckle or two and shed some light on the social life of students during this time.
This April marks artist Kenneth Noland’s 85th birthday! Noland was born and raised in Asheville, NC and attended art school at Black Mountain College on the GI Bill after serving in WWII. You can read about Noland’s artistic career and Tar Heel roots in the newest edition of “This Month in North Carolina.”
During the month of March, we added several new towns to the North Carolina Postcard website. Many of the new towns are represented by postcards from a series of real photo images of railroad depots across North Carolina, which gives an interesting perspective on the varieties of depot architecture across the state.
