Friends with shared origins lead to long-lasting relationships and we are lucky enough to enjoy one with the folks at 680/24 Corridor History Group and, yes, we’re aware of the similarity in our names. It was discussed.
They like many of the things we enjoy and two of those things is history in general and local history in particular. If you’re not familiar with them drop by for fun, deep-diving discussions about local landmarks and the characters who populated them.
Here, they discovered the scribblings of one of our editors and put their own brand on the story, one you may find interesting. They tell the tale well and throw in some memories of their own, one of which made us catch our breath a little – as good stories often do. Plug it in and give it a ride.
We’d wager few if any of our current crop of readers are aware of this one.
