With hundreds of rare pictures, Wilmington: Lost But Not Forgotten captures the many architectural gems that North Carolina's Port City has lost from the colonial period to the present day. Some were lost to natural disasters like fires and hurricanes. Others fell victim to the "progress" of Urban Renewal or the shortsightedness of developers. Regardless of how they were lost, they represent pages ripped from the community's collective history. Preservationist Beverly Tetterton has assembled a collection of lost places that serve as cautionary tales for modern planners and citizens. As we move into the future, preserving the unique character of Wilmington's past is a lesson worth learning. Contains hundreds of color pictures, showing the lost places that anyone familiar with old Wilmington will remember! This is a superb book for historic preservationists, or for anyone who holds fond memories of the charming place Wilmington, N.C. and its beaches used to be.
