Photos at the PoolThe first of these photographs are used with the courtesy of Dorothy Paige Howell. Her Mom, Jessie Brown Paige, was the Girl Scout leader in Pacolet Mills for several years and took many of these photos of girl scout and other activities at the pool. The photos were probably made about 1955 or 1956.
