JIM: The largest crowd ever in Knifley, KY as of 1921
Dedication of new $3,000 Christian Church at Knifley in 1921 drew largest crowd ever there, according to write up in Adair County News. which is as close to holy writ as can be found, no blasphemy intended. Posted with an urgent plea for someone to share a photo of this church before Corps came and tore it away for a lake which never gets high enough to put old Knifley in danger. -EW
From the NEWS, October 25, 1921
The dedication of the Christian Church at Knifley, Ky., this county, will take place Sunday, October 30th, 1921 at 11 a.m. The people of that community are very proud of their new house of worship having spent the amount of three thousand dollars. It is a credit to the congregation and the community.
Rev. W.G. Montgomery of Somerset, Ky., will preach the dedicatory sermon, and great crowds are expected to be on hand. Everybody is requested to bring lunch with them, and an all day celebration is to be enjoyed.
