History and Lore of the Heron House
Formerly called "The Stand" and originally owned by one of Mountain Parks first residents, Mayor Charlie Johnson. "The Stand" which was located on the front left of the house sold sundries, and was known to be one of the first establishments for four counties where beer could be purchased after prohibition. Located on the right portion of the house was Mountain Parks own dance hall and was where most of the beer was consumed. Also, on the premises was a free standing jail where the rowdy might be contained for the night.
Mountain Park has several sacred sites with portals where Ley lines cross. One such site is in the center of our sanctuary, which is why people feel so peaceful and reverent when they enter.
There has been a woman in white spotted by many people over the years, either in the Heron House or on the spillway bridge. One dowser said that in a short conversation with her, she was a refugee and her name is "Analea" and that she felt very safe here.
