     The Kannapolis History Associates is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserve the history of the City of Kannapolis, North Carolina.  The Organization is active today in many areas, including preserving old photographs, preserving and displaying the GI house, and compiling all sorts of information about the early days of Kannapolis, as well as the recent.  We also co-sponsor an annual Tour of Homes, where we highlight several homes in our Mill Village area.
