return to Tollhouse Series 9 Index
Sheep are being narrowed from a flock to a countable trickle by the truck parked on Old Tollhouse Road. The spot where the old grade turned right up the mountain is in the background right. The deaths of many sheep on the grade in the spring of 1877 caused the deaths of many people in Tollhouse in 1878 due to contaminated water. Several Yancey children were among the casualties.
