Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

Mrs. Jackson~Hey there from Dacusville! I was thrilled to find you as a member on this website. I haven't been on here in forever...but, I did want to send you a quick comment to ask if you received the letter I had sent to you. I mailed it priority after meeting you at your house a couple of months ago with my aunt (Sandra McAlister). It meant so much to all of us that I just had to write to you as soon as I could. I wanted to make sure you got it, as I filled the envelope slap full of goodies:) You just let me know if I need to getta hold of the post office in the event that it did not arrive. I can't even imagine how busy you must be or how many letters you are getting...but if you get the chance, I would love to hear back from you. If you want to email me you can at PresentsotheLord@aol.com.

Blessings,

April McConnell Leland

Hey Dot! Hope you are doing well today! I have a favor to ask you-remember back a few weeks ago we were discussing springs and water in the folklorist group-could I use part of your comment on my blog? I'm writing a post about spring water and wanted to add your thoughts to it. I will give you credit of course and link it back to something if you want me to. You can let me know if it's o.k. or not.

Dot, you remember that story "Something Green That Grows" on graveyard cleanup day in Mariah?
At 2:38pm on December 24, 2008, Tipper said…
Dot-I guess I am quite a bit younger than you are-I'm 38. I don't remember hearing about the Doc from the mine. But I bet my mother's family knew him. She was raised in Ranger-and most of her brothers-uncles-and her father all worked at the mine back then. One brother worked there until it changed over to what it is today-some kinda chemical company. I wish there were more doctors like that now. A dollar-hard to imagine.

I bet you have some interesting stories about the dams. I wrote a piece about the TVA lakes a while back. If you'd like to look at it here is the link http://www.blindpigandtheacorn.com/blind_pig_the_acorn/2008/09/tva-in-southern.html. I didn't realize Fontanna is one of the tallest Dams in the US until I researched for the post.

I'm glad I met up with you too! I talked with Aunt Hazel last night-and told her I'd be sending her your sweet comment about your own Christmas memory. She can hardly wait to read it.

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!

Dot-I'm so glad you enjoyed Aunt Hazel's memory! I printed out your comment to mail to her. She lives in Gastonia.

I was born in Copperhill so I know what you mean about Ducktown. I haven't been through Hothouse in a long time though.

I hope you'll share more of your memories with me.

Tipper
