Prohibition in the Little Cities

Everybody loves a good moonshining story.  Learn how Straitsville Special spread far and wide in the era of prohibition. Cheryl Blosser meets up with Eric Hedin at the Black Diamond Distillery in New Straitsville, Ohio. Eric runs the Fermentation Program at Hocking College. We learn about the moonshining that aided the local economy during Prohibition and the Great Depression and how the underground mine fires aided the security of the 1920’s operations.  This video was originally produced for the Little Cities Festival 2020.
