Yes, THE HEART AND SOUL OF BRANCHVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA -- THE CHURN RESTAURANT-- HAS RE-OPENED FOR BUSINESS!!!
"Buckshot" Dukes, and wife Joan, and son Johnny, were the first owners of a business, which was destroyed by the March 15th TORNAD to rebuild from the ground up, to return to the main street area of Branchville.
They were owners of a private business which serves the public.
Also, THE BRANCH JUNCTION was also destroyed by the same TORNADO. And it has been rebuilt, and was opened in time for the September 2008 Raylrode Daze Festival.
But, it is owned by the Town of Branchville. It is not a private business, but public.
THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT BOTH SECTORS OF BUSINESS IN BRANCHVILLE HAVE WON A VICTORY OVER THE DESTRUCTIVE FORCES OF NATURE.
WELCOME BACK!!!
