Posted on January 29, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by
The Harrison Hotel on dowtown Cynthiana's Main Street, January, 1951. Note the building advertises that it is air conditioned and has a coffee shop and dairy bar inside. Next to the building on East Pleasant Street was a Standard Oil gas station. The photo went with a standing feature on different communities in Central Kentucky. The story highlighted the addition of industries and a growing hospital as signs of civic growth in the city of about 4,800. Residents also cited progressive civic organizations as evidence that they live in the "finest town on earth". Today the building is the Harrison House Apartments. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
