COPES CORNERS – In the 1940s, there were only two rules for visitors to Copes Corners.
“My grandfather, Walker R.R. Cope, told people that they were always welcome on his land, as long as they closed the gate so the cows didn’t get out,” said Fred Johnson. “The other rule was watch where you step!”
The cows are long gone, but Copes Corners will once again be open for camping, fishing and picnics, just as it has been – except for the past few years – since before the Civil War.
