I lived in the East part of LaFollette in the early 1950's and my cousin Jerry Poe lived in Indian River village. At least two or three times a week I would ride my bike out there and as I pumped up that long hill from town to where you went into Indian River Village I would offten take a break and walk through the gardens. It was always a magical place for a ten year old.

Thank you for your most kind comments, Donald. I remember Jerry Poe very well. That was a long bike ride for a 10 year-old and included climbing two steep hills without having multiple gears as today's bikes have.
