    "We lived in the Hooper House on the corner across from Cole Chevrolet, and below the water tower. I remember when the dam was built and the building was constructed for the new water plant. It took a long time for the reservoir to fill. My Dad worked for Caswell Knitting Mill and Atwater Hosiery Mill (located behind our house).
