Postcards from Adair Co.: Lindsey-Wilson Training School 1914



2007-07-07 - LIndsey Hill, Columbia, KY - Photo From the collection of Betty Sue Jasper.
The L.R. MacDonald Administration Building was the Lindsey-Wilson Training School when this postcard from the collection of Betty Sue Jasper was printed. The postmark is 1914, she notes. Much has changed in the 93 years since then. The auditorium portion at the back of the building is much elongated, and the cupola is gone. Across the way, present day Phillips Hall can be recognized, but it too, has undergone expansion. There is a curious hypen in the name; curious since the school was named for a young man named "Lindsey Wilson." Perhaps there are other noteworthy elements others may find. If so, they are welcome.
