When I heard that Cliffside power plant was no more, I felt sadness in my heart. Working as a relay tech out of Greenville S.C., we would be sent to Cliffside to trouble shoot a problem or do annual maintenance. I always Loved going there and enjoyed talking to the friendly people that worked there.
I found about this site from a niece....I truly have enjoyed reading all.....I grew up in "Rabbit Town" /Avondale....went to Avondale Elementary thur 7th grade ...Family moved to Newport News, Va. where my Dad got job in The Newport News Shipyard....so donot have the growing up teen years in N. C. have great memories of those days as a kid .....Friends from those days were the Blanton kids and Margaret Brendle.....and the Roach Family......thank you!
I have been told that "Mr. Charlie" came to Boiling Springs to ask my grandfather, Lander Pruette if he would come to Cliffside to run the Lakeview Dairy. It is my understanding that indeed he did do this and I have heard my mom say (more than once) that she had to milk cows before school in the mornings. Guess that's either better or worse, (not sure) than walking a mile to school in the snow.....

I graduated from Cliffside High school in 1951. I would like to hear from anyone who graduated that year.
My Wife attended Tri High School and graduated in 1955. She passed away in April of this year and I was just wondering if anyone remembered her from high school. I would appreciate any comments from anyone who remembers her from that time period. She was Frances Gretel Biggerstaff. Thanks.
