    If you have never stopped by and walked through the Statesville Historical Collection on Center Street, you are missing out on seeing many interesting exhibits.

    Steve’s book is a great Christmas gift for anyone who is interested in our downtown area. It is loaded with photographs and a lot of fun to read.
