B. W. Nash printing

Bushrod Washington Nash was an editor and printer in addition to being a preacher. He began a religious periodical called the Baptist Review in the summer of 1873. He started publishing in La Grange, NC, but later moved to Goldsboro in 1882. In addition to printing the Baptist Review, Nash’s Baptist Review Job Office also printed association minutes books – at least from the Cape Fear Free-Will Baptist Conference in 1884, to the Vernon Freewill Baptist Association in 1904 and the Jasper Freewill Baptist Association in 1905. In 1876 B. W. Nash published a hymn book titled  Baptist Harmony: a New Collection of Hymns and Spiritual Songs (La Grange, NC: The Author, 1876), and which was released in a second edition in 1884 (Baptist Harmony: a Collection of Hymns and Spiritual Songs, (2nd edition, Goldsboro, NC: Baptist Review Job Office, 1884).

Some of B. W. Nash’s sons also learned the trade, and at one time ran Nash Brothers Printing business in Goldsboro.
