"Lowertown" information from historical maps and records were originally compiled by Ann Sheriff in the 1970's. Recently, Dr. Dave LePere at Clemson University has produced a map using this information from Sheriff. There is also a map available for sale at the Walhalla Library that shows the general location of these villages. To my knowledge there hasn't been archeological research on these three villages that I mentioned, so I doubt if any one knows their exact whereabouts. Check out information on these three that was complied by Ann Sheriff here: http://rootsweb.ancestry.com/~scpicke2/images/sheriff-01.pdf

Bearden you're slipping, you didn't map this. Where is this?
That statement is a load of crap. The water put back into the river is just as clean if not cleaner!
Great photo of a very interesting old house.
Beautiful photo of the church. Thanks bearded.
I like this picture because I have stock in Exxon. This looks like a good place to fill her up. Thanks bearded.
No, I passed this site in a kayak. Its along the Saluda River.
Anyone who thinks this is innocent has no idea where this came from. It is not intended for the general public's best interest. Furthermore, all of you on here commenting & calling others 'idiot' for speaking up against this, you have your rude awakening coming up pretty soon... then you will know, along with everyone else, that you were truly the idiot the whole time.
