From the Maryville Daily Times:

"The best moonshine you ever tasted."

That's the description Charles Mike ``Chuck'' Williams uses for the product his father, the late Charlie Williams, produced in an underground moonshine still on Carr's Creek in Townsend.

Chuck Williams, a Venice, Fla., resident, donated the 450-gallon still to the Smoky Mountain Heritage Center. The center, located on state Route 73 in Townsend, will open to the public on Sunday.

The article recounts the entire process of making moonshine and the history behind the still being donated.

The Smoky Mountain Heritage Center grand opening is this Sunday, February 12th from 1:00 to 5:00 PM. Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children, and $3 for seniors (children under 6 free).
