Re: “The Epping Way Mystery

I grew up at 3505 Scenic Hwy. (turned into James Rd. at Highland). We were less than half a mile from Epping Forrest. My parents built their home about 1950. We always heard the peacocks and occasionally one would end up in our front yard,?fully expand, and make that sound. I grew quite proficient at mimicking them. As we drive by EF on the north side, James Road, we could see the many cows. The house, itself, was never visible because it was surrounded by trees.

I agree that the land, club, and apartments on the south side of James Road was probably donated to MCS for a tax write off. There was never a school on that property. Now that MCS are no more, I guess this property should be listed as SCS as an asset? Probably not even on their books.

It was a beautiful, fun, and exciting to grow up in during the 50's and 60's. We roamed the many woods, rode our bikes up to the Raleigh Library, walked or rode bikes to swim in Windermere Lake, and swam at the Moose Club because our dad belonged to the Moose. It cost $10 for a family swimming pass. Scenic Hills started as an up-class subdivision in the 50's, Scenic Hills School was built, and the area was very safe for kids to roam from dawn to midnight.

Raleigh was truly a magical place for our childhood.
