Did you know Emerson Creek Pottery is located about five miles from the ancestral home of Mark Twain? (Samuel Clemens) in Wades
In 1909, Twain was on the inaugural train of the Virginian Railroad passenger train. Twain made a speech from the rear platform of the train at Stone Mountain, near his ancestral home in Body Camp. Is “Wades” where Silas Wade built the pottery store cabin and set up his horse-powered mill? Can anyone share more information about the “Wades” community?
