SCRAPBOOKS Guide, c. 1800s – c. 1980s

The SCRAPBOOKS GUIDE provides a list of links to the multiple scrapbooks held in the Pine Mountain Settlement School archive. The scrapbooks, a rich source of regional history, range from approximately the early 1800s until approximately the late 1980s. The first two scrapbooks were gathered by Pine Mountain School staff while the remaining scrapbooks are the efforts of individual donors who were associated with the School.
