June 18, 2015 - Some time in 1901 there was a rain storm in the southern part of Shelby County which allegedly created Big Ditch. See video footage with the voice of Dr. John Rogers reminiscing and describing video of Big Ditch taken by his father, Dr. Y.W. "Hap" Rogers about 1940.
The video was prepared by Town Historian Buster Bounds courtesy of Dr. John Rogers and uploaded to YouTube for all to enjoy.
