Did you know?
Did you know that there once was an apple orchard at Stafford Hall Farm on Cohill Road?
Not just an apple orchard — it was one of the largest apple orchards in the surrounding states. It once produced more than 50,000 bushels of apples a year.
The orchard employed hundreds of area residents. Big canning factories like Musselman bought its apples. Stafford Hall apples were shipped all over the U.S., and even to England and France.
One thing that a lot of people remember is that in the 1930s, lightning struck the packing house and killed two workers.
