Pam Cunningham Averso grew up playing with her cousins in the forests of her uncle’s land on Sawnee Mountain. She had childhood dreams of a castle atop the mountain where the views from every vantage point were mesmerizing. Her dreams came true. Her uncle and father were architects (Barker and Cunningham) in the 1950s when her uncle decided to purchase a large parcel of this historic Southern mountain where the Sawnee Indians once lived, located in southern Forsyth County. For Pam and her family, Sawnee Mountain represents a lifetime of wonderful memories.
