Appalachia Bare Asks . . . What Would You Like to Know?

1928 Molly McCarter Ogle with daughter – NPS, Picryl

Appalachia has a unique history and her recorded past spans hundreds of years. Everyone has a tale—tall or small, tainted or sainted—because these mountains are full to the brim with stories. Our grandparents (and great grandparents, if one is fortunate) have told us about so many things. Sometimes their words unfold a desire to know. Years pass by and their stories create a little itch at the back of our memories. Maybe there’s more to a particular story. Given that, Appalachia Bare would like to ask:


What would you, the reader, like to know?


1893 Henry Ossawa Tanner‘s The Banjo Lesson – Picryl

Are there stories or topics in Appalachia’s past that you would like us to research and report? Some suspicious goings on, a haunted tale, an unknown hero or heroine, a historical building, a crime? Let us know in the comments section if a person, place, thing, or event comes to mind. (Of course, sources and documentation must be out there and available for us to research.) We’ll do our best sleuthing to try and find out.


Or . . . perhaps the reader would like to tell the story. 


Submit your tale and we’ll go from there. Our region is rich with tales that are waiting to be told. Whether through a submission or writings of our own, let’s continue our journey together.
