Red Hawk Publications Announces Historical Book by Stephen Hill

Redhawk Publications is happy to announce the publication of In the Shadow of the Clocka historical book about the square in Statesville, NC, by Stephen Hill. Hill has also published work-related guides, handbooks, and manuals. He has been writing since his childhood and notes that most of his writing has been in the form of informal local history pieces. Hill is a retired high school teacher, principal, and Iredell-Statesville School District administrator.

Hill comments, “Being confined at home during the pandemic enabled me to dust off years of memories, photographs, and research data. The process resulted in a clearer understanding of just how fascinating the history of this part of the world really is—both the good times and the bad. I discovered that the “square” of any town is a special gathering place as unique as the individuals who frequent it, and its relevance and beauty need to be celebrated. In the Shadow of the Clock is a sometimes sad and other times happy tale about the heart of a small southern town as it establishes its identity, manages its prosperity, and constantly struggles to maintain its relevance.”

He also states, “Although the focus might appear to be rather narrow, I believe it will resonate with history researchers, nostalgic dreamers, and small-town Americans across the state and beyond. I also hope it will provide a valuable case study for downtown development professionals looking for strategies to improve their communities.” 

Local historian and director of Redhawk Publications, Richard Eller, remarked, “Steve Hill’s In the Shadow of the Clock is full of important historical information about Statesville, NC, that will teach readers about businesses, high schools, and notable figures, among other interesting facts. The book highlights the beauty and progression of the Statesville square as well as the amenities that come along with it. I recommend In the Shadow of the Clock for anyone looking to see how something at first glance is innocuous – a small town’s central square – and yet is teeming with vibrancy. It tells Statesville’s history and development which parallels the growth of just about any small town in North Carolina.”

Proceeds from the sale of the book will go entirely to the Statesville Historical Collection, a storefront exhibit of photos, artifacts, documents, and memorabilia focusing on the history of Statesville and Iredell County.
