I am a member of the Board of Directors with the Clemmons Historical Society. We are a group of people formed in the 1980's to preserve and protect the history of Clemmons, NC. There are many projects which need to be done, but our most urgent need to is have space for all the collections and historical records we have. We do not have a home except in the homes of our members. These records need to be scanned, sorted and preserved for future generations.
We are hopeful that we will have people come forward who want to volunteer their time to help us achieve some of our goals and also people who donate to help us pay for some of the work that needs to be done. We have needed to purchase historical landmarks, but there has been no money available and we had to let the landmarks go.
Our organization has worked hard to keep the community histories preserved as much as we can and a book was written by Kevin White as Editor about the history of Clemmons and published in 2013. We continue to collect records and talk to families of some of our original settlers so if you know of someone, please ask them to get in touch with us. Providing pictures, stories, or other historical notes will be of great value to the organization.
