Product Overview

Images of America: Mebane is a visual journey through the history

of a town that has long been regarded by its citizens as "the

biggest little town on earth." From its modest beginnings in 1809

as a stagecoach stop, inn, and post office, it has recently developed

into one of the fastest growing towns in North Carolina. Mebane

has a long connection to the railroad, a legacy as one of the major

tobacco markets in the state, and a history as a major manufacturing

and shopping center. Over many decades, ordinary people and

forward-looking leaders fostered the town's growth by establishing

businesses, industries, good schools, a public library, various recreation

facilities, and other opportunities and services. The construction of

Interstates 85 and 40 brought many changes while linking Mebane

more closely to the outside world and making it an even more

attractive place in which to work and live.
