To Tell The Truth

 Hibiscus House Spotlight Series:  Melvin Purvis One of our hometown heros

I found this video on You Tube and just had to share it with you.

We have had quite a few local heroes from our hometown of Timmonsville, South Carolina, and I enjoy showcasing them.  Some alive some deceased but all are legends.

This particular episode was from the television show To Tell The Truth.
It aired September 17, 1957.

This will be the first in a series of posts I will be doing on our hometown legend and I hope you will enjoy them.

The video is not the beginning of his story but I wanted each of you to see a little tidbit of the man and how he looked, and spoke.  Such a fine southern gentleman.

When you watch the video you will know who our hometown hero is.  He will be the subject of future Hibiscus House Posts.  We are proud of our town's people and love to share, so I hope you will enjoy this Hibiscus House Spotlight Series.
