Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Hopson School

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is Hopson School.  This is located on Walt Arnett Road, just off 19E in Carter County (36.20501, -82.10412).  I was standing on Old Railroad Grade Road when I took this.  Old Railroad Grade Road is the railbed of the ET&WNC, aka Tweetsie, Railroad.  Again, a tip of my hat to Mr. Joseph Penza, Archivist and Records Clerk at the Elizabethton/Carter County Public Library for ferreting out the name of this school.  There’s a picture here of a letter postmarked in the Hopson  Community in 1898.  Hopson is listed as having a post office as early as 1895.
