Abstract:
An aluminum plant has been in Badin since 1913. Built mostly by convicts, Badin was crime ridden throughout the early part of the 20th-century. Although many of the shops are now abandoned, old-timers in the town remember when it was still full of life and a dangerous, but fun, place to live.

Little is known of the laboratory's operation during the war, but adequate anesthetics were provided for the battlefield.

Abstract:
Oakland Plantation in Carvers, a 200-year-old mansion on the National Registry of Historic Places, is currently used as a hunting lodge. Oakland was built in 1781 and is rumored to be haunted. The Neisler family who currently owns the house and lives there invites local residents to fish fries and barbeques on a regular basis, and the family's hospitality is endless. Lena Neill has been the cook at Oakland since before 1941 and her cooking makes guests reluctant to leave.
