Harvey Branon and the Yadkin River flood, 1957.

Harvey Branon and the Yadkin River flood, 1957.

The private road to Mr. Branon’s residence (off Baux Mountain Road) was covered with floodwaters from a creek near Winston-Salem. Heavy rainfall (4.41 inches) sent streams out of their banks and caused much property damage.
