Next Digital Watauga Project Meeting

 Preserving the High Country's Archival Memory

Mission Statement

“The principal aim of the Digital Watauga Project (DWP) is the digital preservation of Watauga County, North Carolina’s historical images, documents, and other materials.  By serving as a digital clearinghouse of Watauga County’s history, the DWP encourages its members and the citizens of Watauga County to make our history more accessible to the general public while also allowing the owner of historical materials digitized through the DWP to retain ownership and control over their original images, documents, and artifacts.  In addition, the DWP sponsors regular public events designed to highlight components of its digital collection and educate the Watauga County community about its rich, multifaceted, and important history.  The Digital Watauga Project, working in partnership with the Watauga County Public Library, is a project of the Watauga County Historical Society, a non-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization."
