The name Mount Pleasant is one that brings memories of its famous, legendary and famous white people who lived there.
In the 1920s, white people, mostly from the South, moved to Mount Pleasant in hopes of escaping a racist South.
When they finally arrived, they settled into the mountains, living in comfortable homes and surrounded by the sights of the South.
They would go on to become America’s whitest people, and were often celebrated as “the finest of the white race.”
They also became known for their work ethic, and for not taking themselves too seriously.
After they left the mountains in the late 1940s, Mount Pleasant became a haven for those who wanted to escape a racist society.
One of those who moved to the mountains was the famous mountaineer, George Stoddard.
He would become known for pioneering mountaineering in the 1960s.
“George was always an example of perseverance and a true gentleman,” says former Mount Pleasant resident Jim Brubaker.
Stoddard was a man of many talents.
George was born in the small town of Blackville, North Carolina, on June 6, 1896, and was the eldest of eight children.
The family lived on a log cabin that was purchased for $5,000 by a family friend, the Reverend William O’Neil, who had been working as a missionary in Canada when he bought it.
O’Neil’s father, who died in 1911, had been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and had been ordained a minister.
But the Stoddards were not missionaries.
So George took over the family business and continued to work on the log cabin.
He also became an amateur photographer, capturing some of the most memorable pictures of Mount Pleasant.
As a young man, he photographed the Mt.
Pleasant Monument in a church garden and the old town hall in the city.
For a time, the Stollards also owned a small log cabin near the town square.
They would spend evenings there and photograph the people and the wildlife, often taking pictures of a bear.
It was a hobby, but a lucrative one, and Stoddes family paid the expenses and built the cabin themselves.
At one point, he sold his cabin and started working as an itinerant photographer.
Over time, he began to build his own photography studio in a shed behind his house.
Eventually, he bought a log home, which he shared with his parents, but he also bought a second house near the village where he lived and built his studio.
While George worked at the studio, he also started to get married, and he started dating his wife, Mary.
She was a member and ordained a member, too, and they both lived together.
A young couple named William and Helen Stodders, who were both members of the LDS Church, married on June 5, 1913.
Mary had just graduated from Mount Pleasant High School, where she was a star basketball player.
Her first husband was also a high school athlete, and the Stolders were the only two children of the Stoders.
Soon, the couple moved to their home near the log home.
Mount Stodds was an interesting place for a family to raise their children.
As a young couple, the children would visit the log house where they grew up and would sometimes spend the night.
With a family of seven, it was not uncommon for a young Stoddars children to be around the loghouse for years.
William and Helen also had a son, Harry, who would go onto become a star high school football player in the South and the president of the University of South Carolina football team.
On a day-to-day basis, Mount Stodd was a place where the Stolds would go for church, and sometimes to watch a football game.
That all changed in 1919, when the Stoulders’ two sons, George and James, decided to leave the home and move to Mount Charleston, South Dakota.
James would go to college at the University at Buffalo, and George would go into farming.
However, they never settled in Mount Charleston.
Instead, they decided to move to South Carolina, where the weather was much better, and where they hoped to get away from Mount Charleston and become the richest white family in South Carolina.
There they decided that they wanted to live a more modest lifestyle and not make a huge investment in the mountains.
Their home in Mount Pleasant had become their headquarters, and it was a good place to begin.
Before long, Mounts Pleasant became known as the “white capital of the world.”
In fact, when it was named in 1911 as the best place to live in the country, it also became the “White Capital of the World.”
As white people were leaving the mountains and settling into the cities, the
