  • Way We Were: Avenstoke blacksmith important to area

    Compiled by Janie Bowen
    J.D. Milton ran a blacksmith shop in Avenstoke in the early 1900s.
    After his wife died, he raised two boys and a girl.
    One of his sons, Millard Milton, became the postmaster at Avenstoke. The train that traveled through would pick up the mailbag from a hook on a post near the tracks, just like you see in the old westerns.
    J.D. Milton’s grandson, Millard’s son, Curtis Milton, was raised in Avenstoke. He brought in an old ledger a while back that came from his grandfather’s blacksmith shop.

    With the title above did you think to yourself, “Hey, I don’t know what a ‘staycation’ is?” If you don’t, then I will tell you. Hi! My name is Caitlin Hobbs and I am a seventh grader at Anderson County Middle School. A staycation is a vacation in your hometown or state. This means you could go on vacation and not have to fly or drive far away. Have you ever looked for historical sites or museums to visit? Well I have, and you should too!

    Editor’s note: The following essays were chosen as the winning entries from Heather Hardin’s seventh grade language arts class at Anderson County Middle School. Students were required to write about “staycations,” and their peers voted on which article they wanted to submit to The Anderson News.
