1959
Rockingham, North Carolina's
175th Anniversary
While going through some old photos, papers, etc. from my parent's home, I found
this Souvenir Program of Rockingham's 175th Anniversary from 1959. I barely
remember this event in Rockingham as I was only 11 years old at the time but I do
remember my dad growing a beard for the celebration. So, I have scanned some of
the old advertisements and writings that appeared in the program and will include
them on this page. I am sure a lot of our viewers will recognize these
establishments of that era but I would guess that most of these businesses have
since closed or ceased to exist for other reasons - as it has been
50 years since that
celebration.
