A Stump In Time


Lavern Howell of Chumuckla, Florida explains the history of timber in the area through the remains of a stump that is over 100 years old. Imagine! The tree that made it was probably well over a hundred when it was cut down, Maybe it was growing at the time of the Creek War and the War of 1812. Some of Skeeter's (Lavern) kids own and run the Farmer's Opry. You can learn more about the timber era in this region by watching short video lectures by Warren Weekes (now deceased). His lectures about the timber baron, Skinner and others is under the Santa Rosa County section at WBUZZ.
