Mike Watson: 210 Greensburg ST - from home to jail, to SPM
Click on headline for item with photo(s)
By Mike Watson
Scanned the accompanying photo a few days ago from the Adair County Pictorial History in answer to a question about the present Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home building's history.
This is from the earlier days, circa 1950s, perhaps, before the first remodel and white paint. Quite a different looking structure from the beauty of today.
Incidentally, the building was constructed as a jail for the county and served as such until the "old" jail which occupied the lot where the present regional jail is located today.
After being a jail, it was converted to a private home, occupied for years by the family of Timothy F. Collins, until it became a funeral home. - Mike Watson, Adair County historian
