The York County Historical Society is planning an Arcadia book on the Dare and Grafton sections of York County. Arcadia is a leading publisher of books on local history.
With very exceptions, almost every book on York County is about Yorktown. In fact almost every other history organization is centered around Yorktown. It is important to remember that York County is made up of other communities besides Yorktown.
The book will contain chapters on Dare-Grafton families, businesses, people and landmarks. I plan of including the Green, Wainwright, Smith, White, Presson, Wornom, Wilson,Amory, Rowe and many other area families.
We plan to include the stores at the corner of Dare and Lakeside,Smith Railway, Green's Barber Shop, Amory Funeral Home,Dare Instrument,Grafton Garage among many others.
Providence Methodist Church and Grafton Christian Church as well as the other Dare and Grafton Churches will be featured.

This ought to be a fun and worthwhile project.
