Synopsis : Hayes: The Plantation, Its People, and Their Papers is a fascinating portrayal of a handsome, timeless house in Chowan County near Edenton and of the people associated with it. Designed by British architect William Nichols and built for prominent planter James Cathcart Johnston, the home and its collections have remained intact for almost two hundred years. Many lavish color photographs by John O. Peters depict both the interior and exterior of the house. A large number of original documents are reproduced that chronicle Johnston's management of the plantation during the antebellum period.
This new book will appeal to local and state historians, architectural historians, genealogists, and anyone interested in the Albemarle region of North Carolina during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Description de la librairie : The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
