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

READ ALL ABOUT IT

Stories all of 100 years old
Bribery And Blackmail
They have to be retold

Definitions of words have surely changed
as Kilts And Reefers are now explained.

Two Kinds Of Success stories
That Work Both Ways
Stealing From Cities
and the Faithful Toby way

No Poison In The Wallpaper
is History Rewritten
With A Humble Helper
and Powerful Competition

Like a Scene In A Play
The Counterpane Got Smutty
He Raised The Bid today
was a story so funny

Striking A Light was crazy amazing
but Obeying The Order became disgracing

Drunk Pennies Justice
is a true story indeed
Like A Woodpecker’s Justice
and Another Pair Of Sleeves

Wakening In The Forest
while Lost In The Fog
and a Costly Breakfast
for you and your dog

We learn of Unreasonable Anger
and How Best To Prepare
The story of Tree Planters
and Village Gossip between pairs

Stories of over a hundred years
Let us watch them all right here
With many bringing you to tears
Taking you back through the years
