Today's adventure took me to Valdese NC since it is getting dark so early I am having to do short trips I will resume with more traditional hikes when spring returns. Anyway Valdese is a small town founded in the 1890's and built a city park around the nearby waterfall McGalliard Falls. In 1906 a girst mill was constructed by Fred Meytre. The Meytre Girst Mill was in operation until 1941 and was closed due to most of the young men in the area being called out to serve in ww2. I attempted to determine how the falls acquired the name McGalliard but did not have much on the internets. The town of Valdese was founded by a group of Waldensian's from northern Italy. I will have to stop by the museum next time I am in town. Anyway here is my take.
