    This might sound a bit crazy ,When I was a child there was an old man that sat on a rock at the entrance of the park ,He waived at everyone ,I have spent most of my life out side of Cleveland ohio .,In 1985 My grandmother died ,I drove my Grandfather to the cemetery ,As we passed the park the old man with the long white beard waved to me just like always ,Along time later I thought to my self ,There is no way ,Had I saw a ghost ? Do they exist ? I cant explain it ,

      I too remember this man. I thought he was Colonel Sanders or maybe Santa Clause. The old man’s name was Corb Jeffrey. He was said to be a pray-er. You could near him praying from inside his house at Henlawson when you walked by.

    i found out today that the rail bus they used to run in and out of the park hollow picking up people was started because of the black panther problem got so bad that they did not want people walking out like they did for years.. my mother walked from where the pool is now to school in the 20s and 30s.. i also found out that the photos of the foundation in this section is of a water tower that was on the right side where the road forked. and also down where the ranger office is now used to be a union hall meeting place…
    i have been trying to find out info about the hollow.. where people lived, and just general info.. if anyone knows about the building across the creek from the ranger office i would like to know that… i do know that there was a skating rink up where the cabin sits now. if you have any info, please add it on here…
