Every once in a while, someone will ask where I want to retire. Well, I don’t think I ever will. But years from now if I do slow down, this location would be in my top five choices to live. It is a piece of property overlooking a train trestle outside of the city of Toccoa. Beyond the ridge and somewhat to the right is where Toccoa Falls is located. In the early 1900’s, Southern Railway engineer David Fant would drive his engine across this trestle each day on his run from Atlanta to cities and stops in South Carolina. Whenever he crossed it, he always blew the train’s whistle. Why? To remind the people at the college that he was praying for them. What an awesome reminder of faithful friendship! His love for the college lasted many, many years. (tfchistory.com/photos/haddock-inn)
