So I just heard some cool news -- Wondering if anyone knows anything about this.
Apparently, somwehere around 1958 (+/- a couple years), a bunch of Hippies overtook Tom Swayer Island. I'm not sure what "took over" means, but at any rate.. they weren't leaving. ;-) So, a bunch of police came in, lined up and down main street, and the park was evactuated.
Does anyone know any more details about this?
