Today the area around Webb's Chapel Church in eastern Lincoln County is surrounded by modern subdivisions on Lake Norman. Go back to the 1950s, before the river was dammed at Cowan's Ford creating Lake Norman and this community was quite different.
The area was then known as Ringdom, a simple farming community centered at what is now the intersection of Burton Lane and Webb's Chapel Church Road.
Taner Howard will tell those attending a meeting of the Eastern Lincoln County Historical Society on Monday August 2nd about the families who lived in this community; abou the stores they frequented, the schools they attended, and the church that was founded 'because people were becoming too rowdy.' Come learn about "Gallows Woods" and the "Mill Pond," distant memories for the few still living who remember them.
The meeting will be held in the Rock Springs Campground Arbor in Denver beginning at 5 PM. The public is invited to come learn more about the history of eastern Lincoln County.
