At our next meeting on August 6th at 8:30 a.m. at the Hagood Mill Historic Site, our special guest will be well-known naturalist and author, Dennis Chastain. Dennis will enlighten us on the wonders of our own Blue Ridge escarpment — which National Geographic calls one of the fifty most significant places on the planet — right here where we live. This will be an entertaining and educational event for all of us interested in our local history, pre-history, and tourism. If you’ve never visited the Hagood Mill Historic Site, you’re in for a real treat. It’s located three miles north of Pickens off Highway 178 at 138 Hagood Mill Road.
