Local authors, Michael Marshall & Jerry Taylor, will discuss their book Remembering Kernersville. July 19 @ 6:30 pm.
Kernersville, North Carolina boasts a history spanning more than 230 years. It was here that George Washington visited William Dobson's tavern in 1791 and the Great Storm of 1893 nearly decimated the fledgling town. The book, Remembering Kernersville, recounts the tale of the 1912 fire that destroyed what had once been Kernersville's largest tobacco factory, and basks in the glory of the resort at Dunlap's Mineral Springs, a local hot spot during the “Roaring Twenties.”
