Rube and Ellen


Now that the majority of the textile mills have closed down, the mill houses, that once housed the workers, are being dressed up with paint and converted into trendy living spaces for young students and couples, like newly-weds Rube and Ellen.


Ellen has just started her master’s at the University of Georgia and she is thrilled to have found such a nice place to live.

Rube was an original member of The BlueBellies Band. Arann and Rube were happy to be reunited, if only for a night, so they could rekindle their music love. It was a complete coincidence that they dressed exactly alike on this day….or was it?
