History Of Cherry pocket
According to folklore Cherry Pocket was discovered in the late forties by two men, one named Mr. Cherry. Because of the way the land lays with the canals, they thought it looked like a pocket, therefore… CHERRY POCKET
It was a place for hardy fishermen and very few women. Rumor has it at distant times there have been cock-fighting, gambling, gator wrestling and of course lots of “Big Fish” caught in Lake Pierce and many “Big Fish Stories” to go along with that.
We have heard stories of men riding their horses in the front door of the tavern, having a drink, while still mounted on the horse, and then riding out the back door. We heard even more stories of men coming in thru the front door, having more than a few drinks, and then flying out the back door with the help of a fist of a man who had even more drinks. Talk to some of our long-time locals – they’ve seen it themselves!
