Photography Contest

Mooresville’s 4th Bicentennial event, “A Town that Endured Change“, gained inspiration from the photography of lifelong resident, Frank “Bubba” Richardson.  Although a hobby at the time, Bubba’s photographs have been an incredible treasure to the Town as they tell the story though the camera lens how a town adapted to the changes that were not just happening locally in our State, but to the entire country throughout the 20th century.

These photos will be the heartbeat of our outdoor walking museum on September 29th and will give visitors a self-guided pictorial tour of the Town as documented throughout the 1900s as they stroll through our tree-shaded streets.

Only appropriate, Mooresville Bicentennial Committee felt the perfect compliment to Bubba’s 20th century photos would be photos taken from the younger generation of today that have a growing interest in photography.
