Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Erwin TN

My day to post post offices.  This is the Erwin TN (Unicoi County) Post Office.  Erwin started out as Ervin, but things went a little wrong somewhere.  Yeah, this is where the poor elephant was hanged.  Cruelty to animals writ large.
Erwin was home to a famous pottery plant and also to the Clinchfield Railroad, after George Carter decamped in a snit from Johnson City.  Erwin also has a lovely Linear Trail that makes for a pleasant bike ride.
