and more in SC.
January 2021

Leaving Fred W/ Symmes Chapel, the two RV Gypsies saw several interesting signs all quite near each other, since they were near the NC and SC border. This was the 11th time that the two RV Gypsies had photographed a Continental Divide sign in different places. Plus they have often driven by a Continental Divide sign that they were unable to photograph due to its location.

Pickens is tucked in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was founded in 1868 and named for the Revolutionary War hero General Andrew Pickens. Scotish-Irish settlers were the original inhabitants along with a few traders who lived among the Cherokees.

Pumpkintown Mountain Opry was definitely closed as the two RV Gypsies drove by. It is said to be a small hometown coffee and ice cream shop, serving lunch and dinner specials, BBQ, frappes and ice cream. In May-September they offer a farmers market every Saturday from 1pm-5pm. The farmers market offers crafters, bakers, artisans and of course farmers!

This is only posted here because Karen Duquette liked the orange chair and pumpkin shown below.
Do NOT contact the two RV Gypsies for information.

The Two RV Gypsies noticed this place because of the giant orange chair and pumpkin house in the yard.  Karen Duquette really wanted to get out of the car and get a closer look, but Lee did not stop.
