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.
