Southeastern North Carolina Through Our Eyes Scanning Sessions

We are thrilled to give our readers the opportunity to submit historic photos for our upcoming Southeastern North Carolina Through Our Eyes book project. If you have photographs that meet the guidelines below, please bring them to one of our scanning sessions listed here.

Photos will be scanned on-site and given right back to you.

  • Photos taken during the 1800s-today.
  • Photos only – preferably original photos (no newspaper clippings or photocopies).
