Along Yellow Creek Road Online

Early spring 2011 found me driving down Yellow Creek Road with my husband. We had, of course, noticed the house with all the yard art many times, but on this particular day, the sight of vultures made from rakes sent me over the edge; I determined to find out more about this collection.

So was born the series “Along Yellow Creek Road,” launched in the July 2011 Smoke Signals. The trip takes readers through local history—from the removal of the Cherokee and the gold mining era to an introduction to the founding families of this area we call home. Readers learn what is currently happening along this road, too—from tree farms to the newest addition, Gibbs Gardens.

Enjoy the trip!
