Now you Know...Mr. Jim Brown had several jobs as a young man... a truck driver, farrmer and then he helped pave highway 21 which was one of the first roads paved between Columbia and Blythewood.  It was done in the year 1921 and therefore earned its name, Highway 21.


This is also why I love my job.  This is the best answer in the history of the world /or maybe just the newsletter and actually (partly) correct!  What a creative employee we have at the Blythewood library!
Lori may need a raise or be adviced to write a best seller of bizarre answers for any and all occassions.

Lori gets the prize for this great answer:

Because it was started in 1921?  Because it was 21 miles from the starting point to Columbia? All the crew members had birthdays on the 21st?  Jim Brown was the foreman and he had 21 kids?  They paved it with 21 ingredients in the tar?  Highways 20 and 22 were already taken?  They ate nothing but grits for 21 days while working on the project?  There were 21 mule farms along the route? 
Obviously, I have no idea but would love to know the answer!  

I can only imagine what her answer will be for the next question!

Do You Know... Mr.Jim Brown had another job around 1918 which involved Dr. Michael Langford, Blythewood's local physician and "the Brush". What was "the Brush"  and what did Mr. Jim do for Dr. Langford ?

   Be the first to  email your answer to kellym@townofblythewoodsc.gov and receive a treat from Town Hall.











Calling all businesses....
Doko Manor is a great place for business workshops, luncheons and dinners on the weekdays.  Or call to schedule a wedding, anniversary party, family reunion or that "big" birthday celebration.  For more information call Town Hall at 754-0501.
