rooms that are available to the public.
The North Carolina History Room
Charles H. Stone Memorial Library
The North Carolina History Room in the Charles H. Stone Memorial Library was graciously donated by Dr. Paul Apperson Reid, President Emeritus of Western Carolina University, in memory of his mother, Maggie Apperson Reid, for the collection, study, and preservation of materials relating to North Carolina and particularly Surry County. This well appointed room boasts a large collection of historical information about Surry County and surrounding areas, as well as a significant amount of genealogical data, especially of Surry County families. Patrons regularly contribute materials from their own historical research. Most of the books and materials from this collection are cataloged as reference and may not leave the library premises. However, patrons may use these resources in-house and are allowed to photocopy pertinent family information.
