Roland Recounts Changes in the Last 75 Years

My parents had their first meal on their farmstead on Thanksgiving Day 1937.  I was born May 1938.  There were five of us in a two-room, tar-papered shack.  We got our first tractor when I was in the first grade.  We moved into a house with indoor plumbing when I was in the fourth grade.  We got our telephone when I was in the 7th grade.  The folks didn’t have tv until after I was drafted into the army.  We didn’t use personal computers in school because they hadn’t been invented.  

Many things have changed in the past 75 years but the tradition of great service, fine food and the serenity of the mountains has remained unchanged at Buckhorn Inn. Thanks for keeping the traditions live.  This is a special place operated by special people. Roland Whitsell, October 2013
