A Brief History of Mooresville and Vicinity. By ALMIRA HARVEY HADLEY, p. 24, 1918. Mooresville.

The chapter heads are "Local Pioneer History and Reminiscences," "Mills," "Schools," "The First Library," "Churches," "Fairs" and "Barbecues." The author writes largely from her own personal knowledge and from information had direct from the pioneers. Her father came to Mooresville in 1830, when he was 11 years old. The whole story is circumstantial and interesting. The community is fortunate in having its early history so well told. Every school child of Mooresville ought to have a copy as a keepsake to make it appreciate the struggles necessary to found and develop the society it enjoys.
