Welcome to Haywood County Public Library: eHistory Collection


The Haywood County History Collection is a body of photos and documents from the history of Haywood County. Begun as a contribution to a centennial book marking the 200th birthday of Haywood County, this remarkable collection is accessible by clicking here. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into our mountain region's colorful history. You may also access our content on DigitalNC:

If you have additional information on anything you see in the collection, or if you have items that you would like to submit for consideration to be added, please contact Joyce Cope at 828-734-5351 or
