Local Historian Highlight: Darris Flanagan
Darris Flanagan is certainly an asset to the Tobacco Valley. Besides being a natural historian who thoroughly enjoys investigating how things unfold and who was involved and where exactly did events take place, Darris also has astounding knowledge of our community. Often at some public event or in a restaurant, someone will come up to Darris with questions about where the old Shay Ranch was located or who was the first doctor in town. Darris is a walking repository of the region's history. He makes some of this available in the numerous books he has written about the valley. He knows so much more though than what is in the books and is always willing to share this with whoever has a question.
