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

I think I got the message about the doctor being wrong, but then the doctor has been wrong so many times, I'm not sure. Why don't you come over to the "Folklore" group and post. Right now, we are talking about spring houses and wells and city water. I'm sure you know something about that. Go down to the last comment which is about 304 and jump in. I miss your posts because they are some place else.

I got your comment, but it was stuck up in the middle of the "Folklkore" group.
I guess I am missing some of your posts. If you write me back, go to the "Folklore"
group and post on the end. If that don't work, I'll invite you to join us again.

Where is your comments about fire drawing? I can't find it. It made me think of a memorable passage in Harry Crews' autobiography where he describes his experience with a fire-drawer after he was severely burned. Of course, there are blood-stoppers, too.
