4008Re: The Mountain House (The Old South Mountain Inn)
- Jan 9, 2008Jake et al,
Thanks for confirming that the M House has always been on the south
side of the N Road. I spent a couple of hours trying to find the
questionable map(s) but only found one with it on the north
side: "Lee's Lts" vol. 2, pg. 175. The cite for it shows 2 B&L pg.
568 but it looks like B&L is correct.
Should I find more I will post them.
