Adelaide Fries's 1949 history that traced the Forsyth story from
its Moravian beginnings through the joining of Winston and Salem
and concluded with a forward look to Wake Forest College as a key
to future cultural growth. The authors emphasize the contributions
of the county beyond the city limits, reflecting the growing social
and economic importance of the suburban and rural area in the past
