Unicoi man hosting meetup for those curious about silver mine

Johnson City Press • Updated Aug 1, 2019 at 8:40 PM

After telling the Johnson City Press about a folktale involving a lost silver mine on Unaka Mountain, a Unicoi man is trying to foster interest with a meeting to share information this weekend. 

On Saturday from 5-7 p.m. at Fishery Park, between the pavilion and the pond, Randall Ledford will tell attendees about the history of the supposed mine. On Sunday at 1 p.m., Ledford is hoping to take people to where “turtle rock” is — a landmark that Ledford says marks the location near where he believes the mine is located. 

For more information, call Ledford at 423-283-7770.
