Description

An interview of Oconee County resident Jim Butler conducted in September 2014. While he was born in 1943, his family has lived in the surrounding area since about 1812 and in Oconee County since 1875. He grew up in the county, moved away after college for about 25 years, and returned in 1989. He is a retired accountant, and currently a substitute teacher for the county. He notes how the county has changed since his childhood in terms of new shopping centers. He relates the story of a house that his family lived in that was previously a trading post in the 1700s and later was torn down in the 1990s.
