JIM: Jane Lampton Pink Cottage Marker made news 25 Sep 1957

2017-09-24 - Corner Greensburg Street & Public Square - Photo Submitted by JIM.
From the Adair County News 70 years ago this week: this sketch and announcement in the September 25, 1957 edition of a plaque to be dedicated to mark the location of the girlhood home of Jane Lampton (Clemens). The text under under the sketch reads:

"Home of Jane Lampton, on corner of John Butler Lot

"On Sunday, September 29, at 4 o'clock the marker that locates the "Pink Cottage" will be unveiled on the square in Columbia. The 'Pink Cottage' was the girlhood home of Jane Lampton, the mother of Mark Twain.

"The public is invited to attend the dedication service that the members of the Jane Lampton Chapter N.S.D.A.R. are holding in memory of Jane Lampton."

The sketch is signed "Sallie A. Baker." Miss Baker (1872-1953) was a daughter of Judge H.C. & Dolly Lisle Baker. Her obituary referred to her as a "progressive and civic minded citizen" who was both a charter member of the Columbia Woman's Club and the founder of the Jane Lampton Chapter D.A.R. It also spoke of her as being "a talented artist and an accomplished musician."

At the reception for Doris Depp

2017-09-24 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Robert Depp, left, brought his mother to Columbia Saturday to touch base with friends and former students who remember her as a teacher who 'goes beyond just the classroom'. Richard Lee Walker is in the center and at right is Vicki Brock Miller who made the varieties of cookies for the day. (PS: thanks Vicki for the care package, Ed is still taste testing to see which is his most favorite).

Scenic Adair Co.: Straight to Independent, right to Greenbriar

2017-09-24 - Breeding, Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,

Both roads 'rise to meet you', to adapt a blessing in the Old Irish Prayer Congressman Tim Lee Carter delighted audiences by quoting years ago, which applies to the junction of two of south Adair County's most delightful roads - especially in the fall. Straight ahead is Independent Ridge Road, offering stunning vistas, loved-to-life homes and estates - the road to Picnic and Dirigo. To the right, Greenbriar Ridge, offering stunning vistas, loved-to-life homes and estates - the road to Chance, KY (unless Gibson Road's seductive pull draws a traveler into Cumberland County). And here the road not taken makes only the slightest difference. It's just saved for another glorious day in paradise, enjoying the gentle grandeur of South Central Kentucky. We'll remember this day, Sat 23 Sep 2017, but we'll surely go back there one day. - EW/LW.

Summer poinsettia looking good on Pelham Branch Road

2017-09-23 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Marilyn Hunter.
Enjoyed a visit with flower girl Marilyn Hunter who shared this photo of her summer poinsettia among the flowers still looking good in her Pelham Branch Road yard. She explained that what looks like blossoms are really leaves that turn the bright color, just as the winter poinsettia we enjoy at Christmas time do. -- LW
