No Destination: Pactolus

Pactolus. I've been here so many times. My father-in-law's family was one of the founding families of the church (Pactolus Methodist) pictured above, c. 1922, and the family remains in the area.

Iron furnaces around this part of the state were quite common and it is believed that the Pactolus furnace (no longer in existence, last blast in 1835) was the first in the state. This unincorporated community is considered a part of Grayson.
