Note: The opossum is not actually "dropped", it is lowered with great care. We treat our little friend with respect, hold him in awe, and do not inflict any injury or traumatize God's creature of the night.

Welcome to Beautiful Downtown Brasstown, North Carolina- "Opossum Capital of the World!"...Population 240, Been the same for 100 years or more. Some lady gets pregnant - some guy leaves town. Used to be the "Moonshine Capital of the South", but not anymore, it has gone to pot.
The most exciting thing that we do in Brasstown, besides going to the John C. Campbell Folk School and dance with the pretty Danish girl, is "Lowering the Opossum on New Year's Eve." If New York can drop a "Ball", Georgia can drop a "Peach", then we can lower the Opossum."
"More exciting than when the hogs ate Granny!"
The Carringer Chronicle, Jan `99
Now folks, this ain't no joke. We take our opossum seriously here at the epicenter of the entertainment scene in Brasstown. Clay's Corner has received critical acclaim in the eyes of the media. We been featured in The Asheville Citizen-Times, Our State Magazine, and Mid-Atlantic Country, just to name a few.
So, we welcome you to our corner, right here in beautiful downtown Brasstown, NC. Hope you will enjoy our site and laugh with us in celebration of Didelphis Marsupialus..our friend, the opossum.
