GUEST,Phil d'Conch James Taylor's 'Copperline' - what's it about? (39) RE: James Taylor's 'Copperline' - what's it about? 01 Feb 21


Best pot stills are made of copper or are at least copperlined.

The modern day Copperline Dr. is a bit west and south of JT's Copperline off Morgan Creek.

Across the creek from the city was Stillhouse Bottom, the local Kick-a-Poo Holler shinbone alley where bootleggers kept shop. It's also right on the county line for a quick getaway if it came to that. Worst kept secret in two counties.

Like in the song, the creek itself; the bottoms and the old Norfolk-Southern line to the east are all suburban nature trails now.
