The Mint Hill Historical Society provides hands-on, environmental learning that includes an entire village of restoration. What visitors may not know is that it also offers reading materials for sale. Residents and visitors inspired by historical learning at the society can continue their education on their own time through books on local history.
The Presbyterian Gathering on Clear Creek by Russell Martin Kerr and Over Flow on Clear Creek are two books for sale through the historical society that focus on the Mint Hill area. The Presbyterian Gathering focuses on the founding of Philadelphia Presbyterian Church in the eighteenth century and is for sale for $25.
Over Flow on Clear Creek is a genealogy of descendants of James Flow (1821-1877) and David Flough (ca 1740-1792) of Mecklenburg County. It was written by Ken Flowe and Gail Flowe Honeycutt and is for sale for $55 at the historical society.
Part of the Images of America Series, the Mint Hill picture book provides citizens with a history recorded through photographs.
