May 1 at 11am, Carrollton Senior Center
Join Perry Museum Curator, Toyia Pointer for an overview of the origins of the City of Carrollton. Carrollton celebrates its Centennial this year, but Carrollton’s rich history actually goes back much further than 1913. We'll put Carrollton into context and share some wonderful photographs of some of the early citizens that helped make it such a prosperous community.
Local author and historian, Toyia Pointer, has been the curator of the A. W. Perry Homestead Museum for the City of Carrollton for the past 8 years. She recently published the book Carrollton (images of America Series). Ms. Pointer didn’t set out to write a book, but when Arcadia Publishing contacted her to do a book for their Images of America series; she saw an opportunity that was too good to pass up. Ms. Pointer enjoys promoting local history and hopes her work at the museum and the book will inspire people to look more closely into their own history as well as be a starting point for understanding more of Carrollton’s history. In response to numerous requests, we note that “Carrollton” by Toyia Pointer is now available at local retailers, online bookstores or through Arcadia Publishing at arcadiapublishing.com.
