"We found that our land goes up... to the very top of Big Glassy Mountain—-at least a mile of real climbing from the house. The timber seems endless....The hills will be white with dogwood blossoms in spring."
Lilian Sandburg 1945

Glassy Mountain has granite outcroppings that can be seen for miles, glinting in the sunlight. According to local legends, the Cherokee and early pioneers named this mountain for these well-known reflections.
