Jack Dempsey, the once-feared “Manassa Mauler,” who reigned as boxing’s world heavyweight champion from 1919 to 1926, has a rather unusual epitaph etched on his grave marker in Southampton, New York.
Anyone who complains that nothing ever happens downtown obviously wasn’t here in 1905.
That’s the year a band of religious zealots known as the “Burning Bushers” arrived in High Point and turned Main Street into their own personal revival tent
All he needed was a moonless night and a couple of willing accomplices, and a High Point infiltrator’s efforts to sabotage the U.S. war effort in 1918 might’ve been successful.
To say the Horneytown Massage Parlor rubbed people the wrong way may be a cheeky pun, but it’s also the truth.
Today, the good folks in Horneytown don’t seem to remember much about the small Forsyth County community’s most notorious business establishment — or if they do, they’re not talking.
