About this collection

The collection takes its name from the Rives family who donated the collection materials. In 1905, the Rives and the Hill families came to Cedar Mountain from Aiken, SC for their annual summer stay. They generally spent the months of April to October in Cedar Mountain to escape the lowland heat. While at their summer homes in Cedar Mountain, the families joined in a camping trip to the Toxaway region near Cashiers and Highlands, in western North Carolina. One member of the Hill family, Hattie, an amateur photographer recorded the camping trip, and associated activities, and assembled 43 photographs in an album. This album comprises the Ora Rives collection.
