Mac's Snack Shack was founded on February
9, 1946. This being the date that Mr. William Echols and his
wife Porter sold the land and building to L. H Mann
(Toot-For-Lute). Eventually the property was sold the Luther
Malcolm (Mac) Mann, son of L. H. Mann and was opened to the
public on March 9, 1946.
Mac's Snack Shack was located on the band of the Greenbrier
River approximately 50 feet west of the now, Alderson
Memorial Bridge at the north end of the bridge.
This Business was operated by Malcolm "Mac" Mann for a few
weeks over 10 years. At that time the equipment was sold the
Mrs. Shields, who enjoyed a stay of many years. After her
departure of the building, it was rented to several people
then sold to the Town of Alderson, who in turn demolished
the building for the beautification of the Greenbrier River
During that time, we were honored to have visit us a 4-Star
General of the USA, General Omar Bradley and his staff. They
were forced to land at Tolley Airport and take a jeep to
White Sulphur Springs where he was to attend a meeting.
One of the nearby citizens who visited up regularly was Dr.
Prillman of the Ronceverte Hospital and his family. They
would stop for snacks on the way to their cabin at Willawood
on the Greenbrier River.
The people of Alderson gave me a wonderful 10 of business
for which I am thankful.
Luther Malcolm "Mac" Mann
