Postcard from the past: J.O. Russell Bungalow

2009-11-06 - Photo from Ann Curtis collection. Location uncertain

Letter from Ann Curtis:

Do you or any or your readers recognize this property? I found it while rummaging through some old photographs of my mother's.

It is captioned:
"Bungalow of J.O. Russell
on Russell Hill Poultry Farm
Columbia, Ky"
I think it looks a lot like the house at the top of Jamestown Hill that recently sold at auction (next door to the old Cy Barger home.) Or it also resembles the style of homes on Guardian Street, possibly one that has already been torn down.

It apparently belonged to Mr. J.O. Russell, the founder of Russell & Company in 1909 on the Square.


s/Ann Curtis

P.S. The handwritten note at the top refers to my Grandfather, Ben Heskamp, who apparently helped build this house.
