Richard Roberts: Woodson Bell's house and the cave entrance
He says Larry Walker and Hunter Durham are correcton their memories of cave
Click on headline for complete story
By James Roberts
My dad (Richard Roberts) worked for Woodson Bell & Elmer Draper in the 70's. They owned the Hostess Cake Franchise at that time.
Iíve got some good stories about that at a later time. Woodson Bell owned the house where the cave entrance is that you are talking about on Burkesville street.
Larry Walker & Hunter Durham are correct on their memories of this.
Mr. Bell showed us the entrance to the cave when he lived there & it used to have steps that led down into it.
It supposedly went from there towards the old courthouse under the old Firestone building. (Red Brick Studio).
Several years ago the alley behind that building fell in & was filled with unknown yards of concrete.
That probably ended that course.
It supposedly kept going under the old courthouse & would eventually come out at Kenny Brockís residence off of highway 551.
Thatís about all I know about that. Hope this helps some.
