Fifty years ago, in 1973, Al Francis created Circus Towne in Twin Mountain. A complete circus from Florida performed four times per day, seven days per week! There was ladies swinging on the trapeze and kids riding elephants. Clowns were always around entertaining travelers to the area.
In the 1980's, Al brought in more entertainment and soon Twin Mountain was known as Fun Towne.
Soon Twin Mountain had go carts, a bowling alley, arcade games and more.
