Storytelling is an ancient art. We begin as children to tell stories and weave them into our own lives. These stories are often a memory, sometimes embellished to entertain. This is a collection of stories told by people for many years of their experiences with the Flying S Ranch, the Pine Mountain Gold Mine and the Stockmar family of Villa Rica, Georgia upon which today sits the Pine Mountain Gold Museum at Stockmar Park. It is not intended to be an accurate accounting of history, but a sharing of the many who have their own story to tell. We hope you enjoy this endeavor and share your own stories with us. Your comments are welcome!
