Posted by | April 9, 2018 11:30 am

This time of year, as the festival nears, someone always seems to ask the most obvious of questions: How did our area come to be called Puddin’ Swamp? Well, the simplest answer is, uh, we aren’t quite sure! I spent some time (over the weekend) with Randy Wingard, who, along with Mary Francis Coker, is entrusted with much of our area history at our very own Turbeville History Center located at Town Square. We discussed four scenarios that have been handed down thru history. 1. Is that a “B” or a “P” ? It’s said that the swampy land surrounding… Read the rest

Comic books, baseball cards or other memorabilia are governed by supply and demand just like other things. What makes some of this memorabilia so expensive is the fact that kids created a smaller supply of this stuff. Just think about the old baseball cards. I… Read the rest
