East and West Southern Pines Book Description :

This original work illustrates the storied history of Southern Pines, focusing specifically on the merging of the East and West sides. West Southern Pines, whose population was comprised entirely of African Americans, became one of the first chartered towns governed by and for a minority in 1923. However, in 1931, the dominantly white East side, a resort community, annexed the West. Using a myriad of historical photographs, authors Sara Lindau and Pamela M.

Nestled at 6,000 feet in the San Gabriel Mountains, the village of Wrightwood sits amidst a mountain range next to the finest ski slopes east of Los Angeles.

Now a haven for commuters, Wrightwood remains a close-knit community despite the influx of more than half a million skiers and mountain lo...

Deep in the heart of southern New Jersey lies an area of some 96,000 acres of sprawling wilderness.
