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

75th Anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park


I am so delighted that Rob wrote about the 75th Anniversary of the
Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the A-C-T today - Sunday Sept. 13.
Celebrations and activities have been going on all year.
On Sept. 2, the park had a rededication celebration, to recommemorate
the dedication of the park by FDR in 1940.
Yes, the Smokies became a park in 1934 but it took FDR six years to find the place.

So, the National Park program "America's Best Idea", though
great, is not the kickoff for the celebration, more like
piggingbacking on our 75th.

Besides Dolly Park sand two songs at the rededication. As Dale Ditmanson,
the Superintendent of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park said,
"Let any other park try to beat that."

Danny, I'm writing a couple of history articles about the GSMNP, too--one about legendary local characters; another about John Muir. But how else can this site help? A feature with links?
