About the Author

Isabel Hall Chambers, a Brenau graduate, is a sixth-generation native of this area and a Norton descendant through her father, Tudor Norton Hall, and grandmother, Meta Norton Frost Hall. Her memories of her family, knowledge of family history and growing up in Highlands are the basis for many of these stories. She is a founding member and the first president of the Highlands Historical Society. In addition, she was recently appointed historical archivist for the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation. This, along with her interest and knowledge of Highlands's history, has caused her to be sought out by visitors looking up their roots. She is a storyteller and enjoys other storytellers. Overton "Tony"? Chambers was born in Chicago and is Isabel's husband. He came to Highlands with his family in 1936, and a year later they built a summer home in Highlands. At Dartmouth College, he majored in English. He and Isabel and their three sons returned to Highlands in 1972. He is a member of the North Carolina Writer's Network and published his first novel in 2005. His interests are writing, genealogy and history.
