More About A Patchwork Quilt by Larry Cavender
 
 
 
Overview
A Patchwork Quilt, in the words of the author, is a partial history of Ball Ground from scrapsand bits of the community's heritage. The"scraps" are taken from articles published in the Pickens County Progress newspaper of Jasper. In A Patchwork Quilt, you will discoverBall Ground's Indian heritage and how the town got its name. You will relive its ancient past through stories about one the community's founding fathers, A. W. Roberts, as well as the recent past in a profile of one of its best known citizens, Oscar "Rock Man" Robertson. You will discover places that have long since disappeared from the town such as the Ball Ground Coca Cola Bottling Company, the Frosty Bar, and the Sequoia Restaurant, and even the relic of a place that never was, The Ball Ground Canning Plant. You will meet interesting people from the town, from Santa Claus, to a record holding school bus driver, to a lady pioneer. You will also get a peek into what the future holds in store and experience one of the most momentous events in Ball Ground's history, the filming of the first ever major motion picture in the town. In a special and very poignant section, dedicated to the native sons of Ball Ground who fought in World War II, you learn the stories of veterans in both the European and Pacific Theaters, from the co-pilot of the first American plane shot down over Pearl Harbor to a sergeant who landed at Omaha Beach and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Whether you're a lifelong resident of Ball Ground, a recent move-in, or just curious about one of the quaintest and most unique small towns in Georgia, A Patchwork Quilt will have you turning page after page in anticipation.
