Abstract:
For many children of mill workers at the Loray Mill in Gastonia, summer was filled with memories of vacations at Camp Firestone on Lake James. Camp Firestone offered a vacation from the rigors of work at the mill, while allowing vacationers to be among the friends they lived with in the mill village and worked next to in the mill. The history of the mill-run vacation destination and its place in the lives of mill workers is told.
