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

This was brilliant. Having grown up in the area, I recognize this deliverery as dead on.

Well, thank you Dot and Betty! I appreciate your kind words. Tonight, I am somewhere outside Easley in a motel, and tomorrow, I will be doing a workshop on storytelling. Tomorrow night, Milton and I will be doing "Prince of Dark Corners" in the Littlejohn Center outside of Pickens. Saturday, we will do the same thing again.
Lewis Redmond and Adaline are buried a few miles down the road at the Return Baptist Church. Everyone in this area knows who Lewis Redmond is/was.

I use this wonderful video in my writing classes, and the students love it. They become familiar with an assortment of writing methods while learning about a neglected aspect of our mountain heritage. They also learn that the immediacy of dramatic monologue on stage, accompanied by cinematic narration, is an excellent way to tell their own stories.

This video is just wonderful. It is familiar to just about everybody in Upstate SC because Lewis Redmond was in fact a South Carolina "success story" -- he lived right on the state line at Rocky Bottom -- where you could jump over from one state to another, when pursued by the sheriff! Lewis married Adeline Ladd, descended from Pickens County, SC pioneers, in a big SC wedding. It was SC Senator Wade Hampton who campaigned to get him out of prison, and SC he returned to when he was pardoned. He lived out his days here, making whiskey for the state, and died and is buried in Oconee Co., SC. Jillions of his descendants are here. So maybe this is why locals can't get enough of this play. Plus, it's so well done --
