THE MOUNTAINS AND
Geneva S. Siever 13
The mountains of the Gap are high, and also very beautiful. The
mountains afford some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.
There is a long chain of mountains extending in a northwest area
southwesterly direction. This chain of mountains being divided at Cootes Store and forming
what is known as the historic "Brocks Gap".
Just west of this division of the mountains the land widens out
becoming almost level in some places and forming a small but fertile valley which affords
many beautiful homes as well as small farms for the people.
The part of the mountain that extends southwest of the Gap is known
as Turley Mountain, this being named from Giles Turley who was among the first settlers to
settle in Turley town.
