Stumping for History

For years, the Pemberton Oak stood, a tree so old it had sheltered the colonial Overmountain Men who marched off and defeated the British at the battle of King’s Mountain in 1780.

The tree blew down in August of 2002, yet people still come by just to see the stump, and various souls have taken parts of the tree and made bowls or pieces of furniture from it.
