Preserving Our Heritage

While working to empower the black community, Mr. Mason McCullough aided in the production of a book that pays tribute to our local black community members and their familial histories. The book, Preserving Our Heritage, was curated in an effort to raise money to relocate the old train depot. Preserving Our Heritage catalogs many black owned businesses in the area, while also highlighting families and community members. The money raised from the production of the book was used to relocate the depot, which now houses a sector of the Statesville Police Dept. - Statesville, NC.  Visit  Preserving our Heritage One Step at a Time to read more about McCullough and this project.
