Abstract:
Flat Rock, founded in 1827, was once a getaway for lowlanders in the nineteenth century. The people of Charleston, SC came to escape the summer heat, avoid yellow fever, and to buy land which was $1 an acre. Many built homes there and affectionately called the town \"The Little Charleston of the Mountains.\" Now, almost two hundred years later, tourists still are drawn to the town. Bartlett describes some things to see and do, including Flat Rock Outfitters, Hand in Hand Gallery, The Wrinkled Egg, Carl Sandburg's home, and the Flat Rock Playhouse, which was designated the State Theatre of North Carolina in 1961.
