The Cape Fearians Collection is made up of photographs from the New Hanover County Public Library Archives, as well as images donated by the community for this project. The collection contains the images and biographical information of people who live, have lived, or have some connection to the Cape Fear Region. Sports teams, school teachers, county commissioners, community leaders, local families and Azalea Queens are just a few of the subjects included. An attempt has been made to capture the rich and diverse community of this unique region.
