Abstract: The story of Jugtown has been told by many writers and raconteurs in many versions. Each story—written and verbal—has increased the fame and public awareness of the place, the pottery, and the people identified with Jugtown. The story has become almost a legend in North Carolina history, yet no thorough, comprehensive study had been made to date. Jugtown Pottery was studied for several reasons. It is a timely topic in North Carolina history. Jugtown under its founders and original potters has passed. If a record of the past era is to be made, it needs to be made now. Jugtown, under new management with new potters, is entering a new era and is at a point when it can continue in the traditional manner on which it was founded or it can completely change its physical and aesthetical character.
