to my Clinch Mountain Home

Come on in and make yourself at home here in Hiltons, VA. Feel free to browse around a while. I hope you find something you like. I've included some of the things I enjoy doing in my spare time. I've also got links to my favorite sites. Be sure to drop me a line before you leave using the e-mail button below or you can sign my guestbook.

Those of you familiar with old-time country music will recognize My Clinch Mountain Home as the title of a song by The Carter Family. A.P., Sara, and Maybelle lived in a little community called Mace's Spring which is about three miles east of Hiltons. Janette Carter, A.P. and Sara's daughter, still carries on the tradition of her parents' music at the Carter Family Fold every Saturday night.

Hiltons has changed since the days of the Carter Family, but it's still a great place to live. It is my hope that, by browsing through my web site, you will get a sense of what life is like here at the foot of Clinch Mountain. I'm always redecorating so be sure to come back and visit again soon!
