About the Book

This is the ninth book in the Looking Back series. It consists of stories taken from the Keowee Courier’s special Walhalla centennial edition in 1950, other stories, and highlights for the years 1956, 1986, 1996, and 2006. It is the author’s hope that these books will bring back some nostalgic memories for longtime residents and provide some historical insight for younger people and newcomers to the area. The Keowee Courier was founded in 1849. Sadly, it was recently closed down, with the final issue coming out on March 27, 2019. Thus, it had been in continuous publication for 170 years except for two or three years during the Civil War.
