If ever there was a “Mayberry” place to grow up in, the Greater Buckeye Lake Region area was it. Small town diamonds. I am fascinated by them. Gem stone stories, folklore and interpretations of exactly what went on before we all got to the place where we stand today. Then there’s the modern day buzz. Animated conversations about new things that are happening. Speculations of grand proportion on how it will all turn out. I love it.
There are things about where I live that I’ve had questions about for decades. For all the answers I got while researching for this piece, I developed a whole lot more.
