If you spend much time in the Cedar Mountain and DuPont Forest woods, hiking and exploring along the small hidden branches and springs, you will might just come across remnants of an abandoned still. Doug Pace has found many of these small stills as he played, fished and searched for wildflowers and bottles in Transylvania County. He will share some of the history of moonshine making, legal and illegal, and with photographs of mountain stills, the process itself. Stories, photos and newspaper accounts of local stills raided and cut, moonshine discarded by authorities, and close encounters between moonshiners and the "law" will also be shared.
Doug Pace is a six generation Cedar Mountain resident. Throughout his life he has explored the old roads, trails and home places of Cedar Mountain, been entertained and educated by stories of old timers and is a wildflower and glass bottle enthusiast.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served after the event.
