Description

Garner, North Carolina, located just south of Raleigh, was officially reinstated as a town in 1905; however, settlers lived here as early as the 1750s. Like many Southern towns, Garner's economy was originally supported by farming, especially cotton and, later, tobacco. In the mid-19th century the railroad and Holloman's Road, an old country road connecting Garner with Raleigh, brought much change to the community. Residents were able to travel between the state capital and their hometown, bringing back new ideas, merchandise, and settlers. This continues today; however, Garner has maintained the small-town charm of its past while adapting to the changing culture surrounding it.

Author Biography

In Images of America: Garner, Kaye Buffaloe Whaley delivers an interesting foray into Garner's people, events, and places, beginning with the earliest kinsman. Whaley explores the town today, including St. Mary's, Panther Branch, and Swift Creek Townships, through over 200 vintage photographs. This collection of photographs and Whaley's ability to incorporate the community into this project have created a visual tour into one small town's past, allowing its history to be revisited for many generations. Kaye Buffaloe Whaley is a native of the area; she represents the seventh generation of her family to reside in Wake County. A local historian, Whaley is devoted to the preservation of her hometown.
