Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Greenup County, bordering the Ohio River in northeast Kentucky, is rich in history and culture. Settlers first arrived in the mid-1700s and carved farms from the hardwood forests. Lucy Virgin Downs, the first white child born west of the Alleghenies, lived in Greenup County, as did Jesse Boone, brother of Kentucky icon Daniel Boone. The 20th century brought industrialization and economic diversification to the historically agricultural area. Ashland Oil, a Fortune 500 company, maintained corporate headquarters in Greenup County. Two steel mills, a large rail yard, an excellent hospital, and a number of surface mines also provided employment to many people who continued to work their family farms, too. This economic progress was mirrored in every aspect of county life as education, health care, and recreation all improved dramatically. Today Greenup County's history is appreciated by both longtime residents and cultural tourists.

3.0 su 5 stelle Very prominent Greenup County resident left out. 5 maggio 2012
Di Alida - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book contains many interesting photos and tidbits of history of Greenup County Kentucky that will probably interest someone like me who was raised there. Although my Aunt Becky Bates is featured in a photo described as the daughter of Joe B. Bates, a well know politician, there is nothing written about him or his contribution to Greenup County. As his granddaughter and because I loved and admired him so much, I felt compelled to write this review and brief biography. The Honorable Joseph B. Bates taught and conducted a Normal School (a two year training school for teachers) in Greenup. He was High School Superintendent of Raceland, Kentucky 1917-1919. In 1921 he was elected county clerk and served four terms_ sixteen years. In 1936 he was elected to the Seventy-fifth Congress to fill the congressional seat of Fred Vinson who was appointed Supreme Court Justice. He was elected to eight more terms from the district where he served until 1953 in Washington, D.C. He was instrumental in getting the construction of the Greenup Lock and Dam and Greenbo Lake. This is just a sampling of many contributions Joe B. Bates made to Greenup County, the state of Kentucky and to the service of his country as a statesman. He spent the later years of his life practicing law and being a mentor to other political hopefuls in Greenup, Kentucky. He was married to Virginia Rice of Wurtland, Kentucky. They raised their son, my father, Joseph Rice Bates and daughter, Becky Bates Vinson in Greenup. His children raised their families there as well. My grandfather, Joe B. Bates was a very important and prominent figure in Greenup County and certainly deserves more than barely a mention in a book that is suppose to present "distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today".

I'm really enjoying the Images of America Series, Kentucky Counties. It offers many a chance to learn and see people, places as we've never known them.

Overall, it is a good read for those interested in Eastern KY. history especially the city of Greenup. One detail is not accurate though. The cabin at the Greenup County Fair Grounds was not built by Daniel Boone. It was built by Grandaddy (David?) Myers from the mouth of route 2. There are still too many people alive that knew who built it and
watched it being moved for this hoax to work.

5.0 su 5 stelle a truly informative collection of historical significance 11 ottobre 2016
Di Shootr - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book is in no way a comprehensive history of Greenup County and nowhere is it purported to be as such. It is a fine collection of photographic treasures of Greenup County. From the stunning image of the boyhood home of one of Kentucky's great authors, Jesse Stuart, to light hearted images of a rural way of life it reaches out to the residents of Greenup County in a way that is rarely matched. There have been attempts at a complete history of the county but that work contains well known errors (but is still a very valuable document also) and again that isn't what this book is. It covers many areas of county history and brings back cherished memories to many that would otherwise be without a photographic record of the county. If you want a complete history I suggest you look to the Nina Mitchell Blggs and Mabel Lee Mackoy history of the county and the supplement by Biggs. It covers far more details of the county but is still short of a perfect work. The combined works are still essential to the historian interested in the county. There is another photographic history of the county titled, "A Pictorial History - Greenup County Kentucky" but copies of that work are very hard to come by. And it isn't a complete history book either. It's very much like this work by James Gifford in that it covers much of county history but was never intended to be a complete record. Those that feel slighted because their family members were left out of these works fail to grasp the format of these works. They are not comprehensive but they are still very valuable to a great many of us. One other history of the county exists written by Jacob Savage and Bertha Savage which is centered on the town of Wurtland in Greenup County.

If you're looking for a collection of historically relevant photos centered on Greenup County you are unlikely to do better than this book. It is a wonderful assembly of important and informative photos with accompanying information for each photo. It has some errors but they aren't enough to render the book useless by any means. They are sometimes significant but they are few in number. Overall this is a great work for anyone interested in county history.
