    The September Where Is This photo by Rita B. Storie features the “Old Rock House” located near the top of Rich Mountain off Howard’s Creek Road and Junaluska Road near Boone in Watauga County. Many readers have fond memories of this now-abandoned home. Morris Penley’s grandfather lived in the house for a bit, where as a kid Morris would listen to Doc Watson play music. Jan Penley said her great-grandparents Billy and Susie Ragan lived in the original bigger house sometime in the early 1800s before it burned down, leaving just the small rock house. The house is built out of native stones from the area. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Patricia Jenkins of Boone, a Blue Ridge Energy member.
