The Eggleston Gazette A Quarterly Publication Volume 1 Issue 4 AUTUMN QUARTER 2017 A favorite festive tradition, Holiday Tea has become a popular pastime for family and friends enjoying each other's company amidst pastries, scones, finger sandwiches and, of course, tea. The ritual of afternoon tea started in England in the 1800s when Anna, the Duchess of Bedford, invited her friends to join her for a small repast between meals to stave off her hunger while waiting for her evening meal, which was served as late as 8pm. The custom became widespread in the 1840s, around the time that John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, had the idea of placing meat and other fillings between two slices of bread. Thus, the High Tea sandwich was created. Steadily increasing in popularity, it became a bonafide craze in the 1920's, replete with silver teapots, fine linen, porcelain teacups, a plethora of comestibles, servants, music and entertainment, and expensive imported tea. Tea gardens were popular and became important places for men and women to meet freely. While we may refer to the tradition as High Tea here in the States, in England it is known as afternoon tea. High tea was initially the main meal for the working class after a day of hard labor, THE HISTORY OF HOLIDAY TEA Afternoon Tea for Three by Frédéric Soulacroix taken standing up or sitting on tall stools, thus 'high', in contrast to the low, comfortable parlor chairs where afternoon tea was taken. It may also denote the hearty midday meal at the height of the day, as opposed to afternoon tea, then known as 'low' tea. Dates To Remember at The Palisades Restaurant November 5th is the end of daylight saving time. Remember to set your clocks back one hour. FREE COPY Afternoon tea was typically a light meal, served between the hours of 4pm and 6pm. It was only during the latter part of the 19th century that the tradition was observed by both the upper and middle classes. Eventually, this afternoon meal became more of a social event for ladies and gentlemen, rather than a meal for the working man. The ritual is now typically reserved for holidays and special occasions. Proper tea etiquette starts with a greeting or handshake. After sitting, place your purse on your lap or behind you against the chair back. Unfold your napkin in your lap. The correct order when eating from a tea tray is to eat savories first, scones next and sweets last. Nowadays, things have changed and most guests enjoys scones first, savories second and sweets last. The proper placement of your spoon is always on the saucer behind the cup and not in the cup. A guest should always look into the teacup when drinking, never over it. In Victorian times, tea drinkers poured their tea into their saucers to cool before sipping. These days, we don't recommend that! We'd love to have you join us for our Holiday Tea. Please see page 5 for dates and times! We will be closed in celebration of Thanksgiving from November 20th - 23rd. We'll reopen for regular service on Friday, November 24th.

The Bucklands had lived on Village Street for generations, beginning in the 1800's. 1. What is your special connection to The Palisades Restaurant? I grew up three houses up the street from the restaurant. I spent many hours in the building when it was Pyne's General Store and have wonderful memories of being there with family and friends. Now, Shaena has transformed it into a warm and welcoming space serving delicious food and providing music on weekends for the surrounding community and beyond. I am so happy for her that she has had such tremendous success with the restaurant. 2. What did you love most about living in Eggleston? I lived in Eggleston for 18 years before 4.

I would like to have the flat iron steak with smoked carrots with Shannon Farley. 6. Tell us something people may not know about you? I live in the remodeled schoolhouse my grandparents attended in going away to college. It was a great place to grow up. Everyone knew everyone and us kids were able to play outdoors into summer evenings, ride our bikes everywhere, swim and fish in the New River, and roam the area free of any fear of harm. There was a real sense of community, with neighbors helping neighbors. When I come to Eggleston now, it's with family and friends to visit the The Palisades Restaurant for either dinner or Sunday brunch. 3. Who is the most famous person you've ever met? David Letterman, on one of my first trips to New York City. 4. What is your most memorable moment at The Palisades Restaurant? I would have to say my most memorable moments were attending the first Celebrity Chef Dinner in 2010 when Walter Scheib (former White House Chef for Bill Clinton and George W. Bush) was the featured chef, and again in 2011 when he came back a second time. He was such a funny, talented, and personable guy, entertaining guests with stories of his experiences at the White House and preparing dishes for us to enjoy that he had served to both first families. And, they were scrumptious! It was the first six-course meal with wine pairings I had ever had, and in Eggleston, no less. These were wonderful times with large parties of family and friends. Sadly, Walter died several years ago while hiking in Taos, New Mexico. 5. If you could have dinner with anybody, living or DEAR MR. MULDOON, I'm planning on visiting Giles County in October to see the fall colors. Can you tell me what else there is to do in Giles or Eggleston during my visit? DEAR CMI, Photo: Matt Gentry -Color Me Impressed Sure, you go fishing! You go sightseeing and camping and have a good time. Go for dinner at The Palisades Restaurant and have a nice glass of wine or a beer. Or you can come celebrate my 80th birthday with me on October 15th. I take cash! Ha ha! dead, who would it be and what Palisades dish would you want to share with them? No question, it would be two people, my mom and dad. They knew of Shaena's plans to open a restaurant in Eggleston (and were a bit skeptical, I must say) but, sadly, they didn't live to see it come to pass. No one could have been more thrilled for her than the two of them. They felt a special connection to her, as does my family. And I would want to share the delicious stuffed pork chops with them. 6. Tell us something people may not know about you? I love my volunteer work with the Community Health Center in Christiansburg and Carilion New River Valley Medical Center in Radford. I spend a portion of two days a week at these two places. I also enjoy participating in service projects through my church. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to know that I am helping others in some way. Mrs. Buckland-Weeks with Chef Walter Scheib.
3 AUTUMN quarter Page 3 The steps leading up to the parking area for the restaurant were made by JB Snider out of repurposed bricks from the old Eggleston School.. Meet The Staff There used to be a doctor's office in what is now our downstairs kitchen. Dr. Tuck had his practice there and patients entered through the back. Lindsay started with us in April 2016 as our Front of House Manager and instantly became an essential member of The Palisades team. Her presence and dependability have allowed Shaena to take some time away and to not have to be at the restaurant 24/7. Thank you for everything you do, Lindsay! 1. What is your special connection to The Palisades Restaurant? It s really more of a future connection for me because by the time the Autumn Quarter of The Eggleston Gazette is published, Shaena and everyone at The Palisades will have done a beautiful and delicious job catering my small country wedding. I think it s safe for me to assume that this will go down as one of the strongest and most memorable connections for me to The Palisades Restaurant. That and the wonderful, loving family I found in everyone who works here! 2. What do you love most about living near Eggleston? All of the obvious things that attract so many people to Giles County every year: the mountains, the river, the sky, the peace and quiet, the sweet, gentle folks, the waterfalls, that one beautiful bridge, and of course, the exceptional cuisine that I m so lucky to eat every night at The Palisades Restaurant. Lindsay Tomsheck 3. Who is the most famous person you've ever met? As a server and bartender in New York City, I met quite a few. Maggie Gyllenhall, John Krasinski, Tyra Banks, Amy Ryan, Hank Azaria, Laura Bush, and my all time favorite, Susan Sarandon! I also served the entire offensive line of the Green Bay Packers at a steakhouse in Minneapolis. That was cool. The entire dining room (presumably Vikings fans) stood and applauded as they were leaving. I asked a gentleman why he d cheer for his nemeses and he replied The Vikings have let us down so many times over the years, gotta clap for someone! 4. What is your most memorable moment at The Palisades Restaurant? Probably New Year s Eve this past winter. The Guinea Mountain Boys (a fantastic, local bluegrass band) were playing and there was an energy in the restaurant that was so fun and special, I felt like I was in the right place at the right time. The entire dining room was so appreciative of what they were experiencing, like we were all let in on this secret and having the best possible time! 5. If you could have dinner with anybody, living or dead, who would it be and which Palisades dish would you want to share with them? Larry David. Pepperoni pizza and domestic beer. Next question 6. Tell us something that people may not know about you. When I was young and free and living in Seattle, I produced and starred in a lowbudget feature-length film about what s it like to be young and free and living in Seattle. It took two and a half years to make and it wasn t all that good. But it sure was fun!!! E We were fortunate enough to have Mitchell join us in June of He is an incredibly versatile cook and can be found on the hot line, pizza, prep, or garde manger stations preparing your meal. 1. What is your special connection to The Palisades Restaurant? Fate, I think. I was working in Blacksburg when I moved to Giles County for the low cost of living. A week later, I discovered The Palisades while looking at my home on Google Maps. I had never even heard of it before but after looking around inside, I knew I had to work here. I consider myself lucky. 2. What do you love most about living near Eggleston? All the local produce. Of course, I see a lot of it in the kitchen here, but friends and neighbors give me stuff out of their gardens, too. I'm starting to get into gardening myself. 3. Who is the most famous person you've ever met? Science fiction author Orson Scott Card. You probably haven't heard of him but I'm a big Mitchell Schopen Mitchell at the pizza station. Photo: Ingrid Lemme fan of his work. I just happened to walk into a bookstore where he was doing a signing. I bought a book I already owned just so that I could meet him. 4. What is your most memorable moment at The Palisades Restaurant? All of college graduation week this year. We were extremely busy and everyone had to give it their all. We really had to pull together as a team to make it work. It was stressful at the time, but I think we have a better team for it. 5. If you could have dinner with anybody, living or dead, who would it be and which Palisades dish would you want to share with them? I think Alton Brown would be a good choice. I'm a fan of his show Good Eats and he grew up with southern food but also loves unconventional and inventive cooking. I think he'd have a lot to say about The Palisades. I'd suggest he try whatever feature is most experimental. 6. Tell us something that people may not know about you. My father is a chef and owns his own restaurant. I didn't consider cooking as a career until recently, but am now proud to follow in his footsteps. Caption highlighting key points about picture and potential story following.

Book Review by Andrew McMillen The Spine of the Virginias by Michael Abraham of the Virginias; "Dirty Dancing" filmed at Mountain Lake Resort, "October Sky", inspired by Hiram Higham's book Rocket Boys, in Coalwood, Mercer County WV, and "Patch Adams" starring Robin Williams. The real Patch Adams' Gesundheit! Institute near Hillsboro (Pocahontas County, WV) "combines traditional alternative medicine and integrates nature, recreation, crafts and agriculture". Author Spotlight: James Alexander Thom The Spine of the Virginias by Blacksburg resident Michael Abraham is a geology primer, almanac, encyclopedia and atlas, historical text, travel resource and sociological investigation. It combines all of these in a book that also reads almost like fiction. I was unable to put it down. The title of the book refers to eleven counties in Virginia and eight in West Virginia that run from north to south, but could also describe the people that populate this region and their attitude towards life, i.e. they have spine, as represented by approximately 150 residents whose interviews provide the structure of the book as well as a lot of the information contained in it. If you were teaching a course on the geography, economics, geology, history or sociology of this area, this could be your textbook. It is crammed with facts that entice the reader to explore the area. The spine includes the southernmost region of maple syrup production in Appalachia (Highland County, VA) which, we learn, has no fourlane highways or traffic lights in the entire county! A little west, across the state line in Pocahontas County, WV, we find the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope, the world's largest fully maneuverable radio telescope. Nearby is the Snowshoe Mountain Resort, the largest ski resort in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern US and one the largest employers in West Virginia. We discover that no fewer than three major motion pictures are associated with the spine Abraham informs us that John Denver's widow resides in Bluefield, WV and provides interesting tidbits about Bob Denver, the actor who played Gillgan on "Gilligan's Island" and Maynard G. Krebs in "The Adventures of Dobie Gillis" and his local problem with the marijuana laws. In Sinking Creek Valley (Craig County, VA) resides a world class scientist, Bill Wolf, who was trained by no other than the Leonardo DaVinci of the twentieth century, Buckminster Fuller, in sustainable agriculture and the environment, and is putting his knowledge to work worldwide. This book does not ignore social issues. Abraham deals with the history of the formation of West Virginia from Virginia shorty after the beginning of the Civil War and the tension between Confederate sympathisers and union supporters. Climate change and coal production and the social and economic influences of the coal and railroad industries are themes threaded throughout the book using the words of real people to show that this part of the country really is a part of the modern world and not some isolated backwater. Beekeeping, maple sugar farming, beef and hog raising, meat packing and many other agricultural activities are featured throughout. If I had more space here, I could find a lot more to say about this valuable work and incredible read. Buy it and read it! It's available in the gift shop adjacent to The Palisades Restaurant.

The New River is likely the second oldest river in the world and follows a peculiar south to north route before joining the Kanawha in WV. Mary Draper Ingles: A Brief History Many of you may know the story of the capture and escape of Mary Draper Ingles, a pioneer and early settler of what is now Draper's Meadow near Radford, Virginia. In the summer of 1755, she and her two young sons were among six people taken captive by the Shawnee during a raid and subsequent massacre at her homestead. She was taken to northern Kentucky and spent three and a half months in captivity before escaping in late October. Mary travelled over 500 miles through the wilderness, following the Ohio, Kanawha and New Rivers back to southwestern Virginia. She spent 42 days in the wild until she reached the home of Adam Harmon on the banks of the New River in Eggleston on December 1st, At The Palisades Restaurant, we commemorate this day on the first Saturday in November (this year on November 4th) with a potluck and an informal gathering with Mary's descendants.

Whittaker and his brother in This past year, the building celebrated its 90th birthday! The general store sold everything from food to bolts of fabric to penny candy. The building housed a doctor's office (Dr. Tuck) in what is now the downstairs kitchen. The attached building was a Chevrolet dealership. The Eggleston Post Office operated from out of the store. The Pynes took over the building in the late 1940s after their store on the railroad tracks burned down. They had traded their dairy farm in Northern Virginia for the general store. They renamed the store Pyne Co & Merchandise and expanded their business to include hardware in the former Chevy dealership space. Across the street on the corner, in the wooden building that today barely stands, was the original ice cream parlor that the Pynes converted into the feed & seed part of their general store. The general store operated until Nine years later, it was reopened as The Palisades Restaurant. Gladys Dowdy and friend at the QM Pyne general store. Located on the New River, Eggleston was settled by Adam Harmon in 1745 and was the first permanent settlement in Giles County. Harmon originally named the settlement Gunpowder Springs. Artifacts have been found along the springs, streams, and river that prove Native Americans lived in Eggleston long before the first white settlers. Eggleston s rich history also includes the capture by Native Americans and famous escape of Mary Draper Ingles in Adam Harmon found Mary Ingles, near death, at the Eggleston Palisades after she traveled hundred of miles along the New River to return home after fleeing her captors. A resort was first established in Eggleston in the early 1830s. The spa was called Hygeian Springs. The massive cliffs throughout the resort were given classical names like Caesar s Arch, Pompeii s Pillar, and Vulcan s Forge. Dr. Chapman took over the resort in the late 1850s and built a new hotel and a dance pavilion, as well. The resort survived the Civil War (unlike many resorts that were burned and looted) but without any customers. In 1867, Captain William Eggleston took over and changed the name to Eggleston Springs. In 1881 construction began on the New River Extension of Norfolk and the Western Railway on the opposite side of the river from the resort. The railroad was completed in In 1886, Eggleston Springs was officially renamed Eggleston. Business flourished around this time, especially mercantile establishments. At one time there were six mercantile centers in Eggleston, each doing exceptional business. The old Eggleston Depot. The Eggleston depot became an important hub for distribution to all the southern parts of Giles, from Newport to White Gate. A canning factory, barrel factory, mill, livery stable, garage, shoe shop, millinery shop, ice cream parlor, jeweler, and bank all existed during this prosperous time. In 1902, a new hotel at the resort in Eggleston replaced the old one. As a result of the Great Depression in the 1930s, the resort s business came to a halt and it was later torn down. The last standing building of the resort, the dance hall, burned down in the 1940s. Floods in 1911 and again in 1940 played a big role in the destruction of some of the Eggleston stores. Eggleston has changed from a frontier settlement, to a lively resort area, to a busy commercial town, and back to a quaint village. With the hotel, schools, and most businesses gone, Eggleston now has a post office, three churches, a population of approximately 300, and a rich history. People still go to Eggleston to dine at The Palisades Restaurant and to fish and to camp in and on the New River where they can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors along with the peacefulness of a small town.
