Cover Image For WINDOWS ON THE PAST

WINDOWS ON THE PAST

Windows on the Past: The Cultural History of Vardy features oral histories and images of Melungeon daily life such as church gatherings and family activities by focusing on the Vardy Community School, a Presbyterian mission school, and the Vardy Community Church. A vivid description of the community and its historical buildings is included as the interviewees discuss the classroom environment and teaching activities within the school. The impact of the school's staff and the spiritual and community leaders is also emphasized. Relative to these stories is the Vardy Community Historical Society, Inc., a group formed to restore Vardy landmarks and preserve the community pride. Windows on the Past allows its readers the opportunity to experience Melungeon culture and the community through the voices of oral histories. Their respective viewpoints help us understand this distinctive Appalachian community located on Blackwater Creek, Newman's Ridge, and Powell Mountain in Hancock County, Tennessee, and Lee County, Virginia.
