      Few Snouffers in 'Snouffer Town'
      By Jim Schlosser

      "GREENSBORO -- *** But the landmark most associated with the [Snouffer] family is Snouffer's Lakes, visible from Church at the intersection with Berryman Street. George Snouffer and his son, Charlie, built the two lakes below a house dating to the late 1800s or early 1900s. Charlie and his wife, Frances, reared 11 children and at least two horses. After Charlie and Frances died, their children and grandchildren stayed in the house.

      "People from all over paid to fish at Snouffer's Lakes.

      " 'They would either walk up here and pay, or we'd go down there and ask for the money,' says Candy Snouffer Dickson, 32, Charlie Snouffer's granddaughter, who lived in the house until she was 25. ***"
