Murray Kilgore to Clarence Alcock – 24 January 1946:

“A long time ago, Glasgow was just a little sleepy town, trying to get ahead. Where Ellis drug store (George J.’s) now stands was a pond, which was later filled in and a two-story brick building erected on the site. Later on the wall on the south side began to bulge and props were put up to keep the building from collapsing – about the year 1894. I passed along this street almost daily, always with the fear that the wall would collapse during my transit, and I am quite sure lots of you old timers there in Glasgow had the same feeling of trepidation.”

About Gclee

I am a long time genealogy and local history hunter from Barren Co., KY. I have many stories to share that may be of interest to other local genealogists and history buffs. I enjoy this as a hobby and hope I can be of encouragement to others. I also hope everyone enjoys my stories as much as I have enjoyed learning about them.
