BOOK , "Favorite Highland Springs Recipes"
was written and published in 1953 by the Highland
Springs Senior Women's Club as a fund raiser.
WE WERE NOT SURE where
to place this feature because it is a piece of our
past and has a food element as well. We decided that
this section provides ONE CREDIT EACH in History and
Home Economics. No skipping this class.
The book has recipes from some of the leading citizens
of Highland Springs and has a foreword about the history
of the town. The publication was produced in typewriter
text (recreated here) and has hand-drawn illustrations
and advertisements for the local merchants that helped
pay for its printing.
We have tried to faithfully recreate the imagery and
feel of the book as it was printed 50 years ago. The
recipes, page numbers and illustrations are presented
just as they were in the original book.
We have recreated about 30 pages so far, including
those great hot breads of Highland Springs, Chop Suey
by Coach Gilly Sorrell, and Soups by Mrs. Ralph Johenning
and Mrs. A. H. Hechler. More pages will be coming soon.

in Highland Springs.
