Haw Creek’s Hidden History
Thursday, Nov. 10, 7:00-8:30 pm
St. John’s Church
How well do you know Haw Creek’s history? Do you know where the former air strip landing site was located in Haw Creek? Do you know where the Prohibition-era speakeasy was located? Do you know why Forster Sondley selected the Haw Creek valley as the home for his 400-acre estate? Do you know which valley home was built by prisoners for the warden who went on to reside there? Do you know where a former school principal built a replica one-room schoolhouse on his own property? 

These are just some of the historical facts to be revealed by Haw Creek resident and historian Rick Fornoff, in a special program 
following a public meeting of the board of directors of the Haw Creek Community Association beginning at 7 pm, Nov. 10th. After the meeting there will also be a dessert social with the opportunity to meet your neighbors and ask Rick questions. Don’t miss this chance to learn about your neighborhood’s fascinating hidden facts!
