The chartered township of West Southern Pines, NC was run by negros (blacks) in the 1925 - 1929 era. The town had a negro mayor and council. The police officers were also negros and one was my grand father (Frank Waddell). Where might I find minutes of the council or police department records for the township. The west side was annex to the east side to become the township in Southern Pines, NC around /about 1930. Any information or guidance you can share on the West Southern Pines, NC era would be great.
Dear Mr. Waddell,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
In addition, the University of North Carolina Southern Oral History Program on West Southern Pines may be useful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
