Hickory, North Carolina is a community of some 35,000 people nestled in the foothills of  Western North Carolina. Like most American cities it is rich with evidence of its cultural history. Like most American cities much of it is gone, relegated to memories and scrapbooks . . . if we’re lucky.

Lost Hickory: A Compendium of Vanished Landmarks is an illustrated compilation of architecturally and historically significant buildings in Hickory that are no longer standing. Skillfully presented by author and local historian Leslie Keller, this book is certain to become the “must have” reference to learn and appreciate the built environment of Hickory’s glorious past. The result of countless hours of research, documentation, and detective work, Keller gives us more than two hundred “lost” properties from the period 1875–1935, each with their own unique history and association.

Lost Hickory: A Compendium of Vanished Landmarks is a publication of the Hickory Landmarks Society, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Hickory’s architectural and cultural heritage.
