Hunter Durham remembers riding Greyhound, alone, at 9

Bus drivers looked after him along the way, on trips to Starks Building in Louisville to visit dentist

Hunter Durham writes:
I rode the bus from Columbia to Louisville and back with Mr. Henry Morgan and I believe the other bus driver was named Stewart. I would go at the age of 9 by myself to the dentist in Louisville where he worked on my braces at the Starks Building, catch a show on 4th Street and then get back on the bus at the bus station located at 5th and Broadway. We got involved with a bunch of bees which came into the bus north of Bardstown, a bus wreck just north of Lebanon, and I often stood by the driver as we traveled. The drivers took good care of me. The bus station then was at the Old Hotel on the Square. -Hunter
