McAllister

Peter and Gracie Rosenberger have spent at least 20 Christmases at their cabin near McAllister, and their two sons practically grew up in the Madison Valley. McAllister has provided a refuge for the family in the wake of a car wreck that resulted in the amputation of both of Gracie’s lower legs in the 1990s. (Courtesy of Peter Rosenberger)

Windbreak

MCALLISTER—Like many, Peter and Gracie Rosenberger are only residents of Madison County for part of the year. But unlike most snowbirds, they leave their home in Nashville to spend the winters in McAllister, not the other way around.

As of Monday afternoon, the Virgina Creek fire, near McAllister, torched 15 acres and was still burning. It was possible, if the fire jumped certain boundaries, that evacuations of South Meadow Creek homes would be ordered. (Howard Sheridan photo)

Fires hit Madison County

MCALLISTER - Saturday evening, August 4, at 6 p.m. representatives of the U.S. Forest Service, the Madison Valley Rural Fire Department, and Madison County met with about 20 residents who have homes in the South Meadow Creek area.

The fire official’s message to these people was serious: “Be prepared,” they said.
