    It was in the early 1920's when lawyer Scroop Styles was asked by the county sheriff to help negotiate the surrender of two men making moonshine in Barnardsville. The moonshiners didn't have any money to pay their lawyer so the judge awarded the still to Styles. The still eventually came into the possession of Harriet Styles, a long-time Black Mountain resident and one of the founding members of the Swannanoa Valley Museum. She generously allowed her still to be displayed in a current exhibit at the Museum. Photo Provided by the Swannanoa Valley Museum
