Scott Family

Since the early 18th century, the Scott family has played a major role in leadership throughout Central Carolina. Their accomplishments have been showcased in The Scott Family Collection which focuses on the five major areas of their influence: Agribusiness, Education, Medicine, Public Service and Religion. You are invited to explore this information and learn more about a unique family who has contributed so significantly to Alamance County, this region and North Carolina.
