Learn about ‘The Man Who Carved Stone Mountain’ at May 11 meeting

The Pike County Historical Society will hear from Donna Faulkner Barron about her dad and the book she wrote about him, ‘The Man Who Carved Stone Mountain’ at their Thursday, May 11 meeting. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. at the city of Zebulon’s Opportunity Center next to the city park.

Roy Faulkner was the chief carver of the Confederate Memorial carving on Stone Mountain. Donna Faulkner Barron is his oldest daughter and she was born to Roy and Juanita Faulkner in Atlanta and raised in Covington, GA. Donna is married to Ronald Peter Barron and they have two children. She worked as a stenographer for the Georgia State Labor Department for five years. Then she moved back home and began her new adventure in life – being her dad’s assistant. She helped compile records using her secretarial skills and in the mid 80s she found herself as the secretary to her dad who was the Curator of the Stone Mountain Carving Museum which was opened for a couple years on Memorial Drive. Thirty years later she used those same secretarial skills to co-author the book, “The Man Who Carved Stone Mountain,” along with her dad and Kay Stowe Jones.

“What an honor and privilege to work side-by-side with my dad to tell his story and share his legacy forever,” she said.
