Great website -- hat's off to Mike Jones and Larry Wright!
"Chur-vul", as we natives pronounced it growing up. I've lived in several major cities over the last 20 years and without a doubt I eventually met someone who has either been-to-or-heard-of the "Little City with a Big Future".
My recollection of Cherryville during the 60's and 70's ...
Trips down Mozelle's road.... my mom's '67 Impala stationwagon was never the same; Ironmen basketball games at Nixon Gym; "circling" the City Park, Burger Barn and Tastee Freeze on summer nights; smuggling 6 people in the trunk of a car for the "$1.25 per carload" special at the BCKM on a Friday night; attending 1st Presbyterian Church; "seemingly endless" summer days at the Country Club Swimming Pool; C'ville High School Band trips and the annual "contests"; listening to WCHL on an early winter morning in hopes that school would be cancelled due to snow; haircuts at People's Barbershop.
Lottaburgers from the Shake Shop; Vanilla cokes at Allen Drug on Saturday morning; Milkshakes from Houser's Drug (Sally Lackey's were primo!); fried fish at Poker Gantt's on Friday night; my aunt's (Miss Soonie Stroup's) spaghetti and yeast rolls at West Elementary School; and finally, the infamous Dagwood and Fried Onion rings around midnight on Saturday night at the Triple H.
That's my quick trip down memory lane ... and growing up in Cherryville North Carolina.

Never been to Cherryville but heard a lot about it at one time.. Served in the Marine Corps in the 60's with Arthur Sherrill (sp) Baxter from Cherryville who used to refer to it with many stories about growing up, etc. Sounded then like the perfect little town. Maybe I will stop there next time I am out that way.. Very good WEB site..

Hi I grew up all my life in Cherryville, I joined the Navy in 1984 and only get back every year or two. It would be very nice if some of the news from the Eagle could get posted on this web site.

Just writing to say
how your website evoked so many fond memories for me.
Date: March 1, 2002
much fun reading all about Cherryville. My fondest memories are
of the 7 years my family lived there. I went to school there from
2nd grade through 8th grade. My sister Jane graduated from CHS in
1968. My sister Ann was in the 10th grade when we moved. We
had so much fun there and still visit our friends often. My
friend Robin Beam Cox turns 48 today. We met 40 years ago in
Sunday School at the Methodist Church. My father used to asked if
we would ever stop laughing. We haven't! We had so much
fun. Diane Hovis, Lynn Carpenter, Denise Edwards, Robin Beam, Pat
Blackwood and I. We all had older siblings that wanted nothing to
do with us. We surprised them by hiring a taxi to "circle"
Blackwoods! Years ago when my 17 year old daughter was 10 she had
to write a poem that described me.! One of the things she said
was I was a lover of Cherryville. She knows me well. I have
kept in close contact with some of my childhood friends from
Cherryville. It was the best place to grow up. My father
Dick Malloch passed away Dec. 17, 2002 at the age of 77. He also
loved being a Yankee living in the middle of the South. I
could go on and on but will stop. Please feel free to email me.

Just Wanted to let you know how

Hi Larry, I saw your notice on the
CHS classmates message board.
As a previous resident I would love
to find my old freinds from 30 years ago:
I've really enjoyed browsing your web sight.
I wish now we had driven on to tour your little town,
it reads like a story book.
We were visiting Larry Hullender's brother and sister, Bob and Louise, and were trying to gather names of ancestors.
Bob took us to the Hullender Cemetery where we took pictures and wrote down some of the markers that were hard to read.
Bob said that their grandfather, Fletcher Hullender lived in a farmhouse on Goforth road before the Cemetery,
either as a child or as an adult.
Would be very appreciative for any information regarding Fletcher Hullender or his parents, names unknown.
The next visit we make to Kings Mtn. we definitly want to enjoy a look at Cherryville.
Thank you. Pat Hullendar

I was just browsing the internet and trying to keep up with my hometown news
when I came across your website.
Thanks. It's great to know that Cherryville has it's own website.
I grew up in Cherryville and graduated in 1979. I try to get back that way when I can.
I have lived in Columbia, SC since 1988, but I really miss Cherryville.
I was just there in October, 2000 for my 20 year high school reunion.
We had the Class of '78, '79, and '80 all together. It was great!
Hope all is well in Cherryville!!

Date: April 20, 2000 Hello from the San Bernardino Mountains of California, Cherryville just lost one of the finest citizens ever. Annie J. Black passed away on April 12, 2000. She was the great grandmother of my children Josh and Jessy Mauney. I used to visit her every chance I got. She loved Cherryville. Thank you for this wonderful website. It brings back the nicest memories of a number one town. Fondly, Amy McLaughlin

Date: March 7, 2000 It is great to hear from people who graduated from CHS in 1979! Cherryville folks are the best in the world. Would love to hear from any of you! Fritzi Self
Date: February 27, 2000 To Whom It May Concern I'm totally impressed by your website. You've made me want to come explore the wonderful city of Cherryville. I've heard of a wonderful restaurant named Home Folks Cafe; could you please include a picture of an employee named Jane Hancock. It would make me so tickled if I could get some brochures or any other literature you could offer about your wonderful town. Thank you! Evan Clapsaddle

Date: February 24, 2000 What a joy it was for me to find the Cherryville website! I really enjoyed spending a few hours looking around at everything. Of special interest were the photos from 1968, the year I graduated from Cherryville Senior High. My brother Roy owns and operates Homefolks Cafe, my brother Jr. is a mechanic, and sister Terry lives in Cherryville, along with many of my nephews and nieces. I have been a resident of Rapid City, SD since 1976, and currently work at Western Dakota Technical Institute as the Placement Coordinator. Visiting the website has made me homesick to visit Cherryville again. A lot of memories center around the old theater, Howell Mill, and numerous people I knew there. I would be greatly interested in hearing from anyone who graduated in 1968. I can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. or by phone at 800-544-8765. Keep up the good work and I will look forward to periodically visiting the web site again. Bruce Lail
