does anyone know the history of piedmont- like the areas that aren't necessarily the main town but the farmland? Could there be anything interesting to find?

hello, it's Sniffer again.
I'd check with your local historical society. talk to the older people there and in the area.
they will have more info than anyplace else

I have thought about it- but I dont know very many people in the town- everything is VERY spread out especially most of the housing. Have you ever come across an area that offers nothing at all like a field? I do know a little about our state's history with Native Americans but as far as the specific area is concerned I am real curious as to what took place. Piedmont was founded during the land run I know that. Also there is a town website that explains the states the history etc. but just curious if farmland or an acreage is a productive place or not. Thanks for all your help!

it depends on what you're searching for. try going to your local library and see if they have a local made history book about your town. sometimes they include writings or memories from some of the residents of the town.
it takes time to read through one of those books, but take notes and write down the interesting places in town and start asking some of the older residents about town.
If you need a place to ask questions, try the local cafe, early in the morning when the farmers and early risers are there.
ask the waitress about locals that are willing to give you some info
good luck
