- Cathy Belk Goodwin shares the following childhood memories, "My family moved to Springdale Road in 1959. I played at the old Springstein Plantation all through my childhood.
My first memories of the home are a little fuzzy but I remember the house as white with a red brick foundation. It was tall and narrow. I went into the basement and saw the shackles and chains hanging from the brick walls.
The house was two or three stories, maybe two stories with a basement. The stairway that we climbed to the attic was very narrow and the rooms were small.
There was a smoke house to the left rear of the back door and slave quarters out behind that. There was an apple orchard and pears and grapes. I remember a well but there were stories that an unmarked open well was somewhere out back and was a big cause of concern for my parents. They warned us not to play there.
I remember when the house was torn down the basement remained for years and I could crumble the bricks in my hands." (2)
