Traxler Fall Festival

We visited the Traxler Fall Festival held at the Springhill Methodist Church that was established in 1860. It is a beautiful church with lovely people. They had a barbecue, craft fair and bake sale. I think we go just for the bake sale as the Ladies of the church must be the best cooks in the whole county. We just had to buy a whole Italian Cream cake. Let me tell you it is fab. This is Bellamy Road, one of the oldest roads in the area. I have always loved a canopy of oaks. A Civial War soldier.

The festival was on October 3, 2009. I said a little prayer for this tiny child. He is gone but not forgotten.

The cemetary has graves from many slaves as well as the pioneer families of this area.

Sudye Cauthen wrote a book about the Bellamy Road. Her family home is just down the road from you --- sort of. Beautiful photos.
