History: The story & Lineage of C.R. Hutchison & Sons

The story of a mainstay of Downtown Columbia, C.R. Hutchison & Sons, began in 1909 and served Columbia and Adair County beyond C.R. Hutchison's death in 1950 and the sale of the business in 1974 to Donald Harvey and James Lewis Moore. With many notes on ties to old Columbia families: The Pattesons, the Bargers, and the Flowers- even the little known source of the "P" in Dr. Ron P. Rogers name and more on the better known Greensburg, KY Fount Pendleton family tie to the Hutchisons. - EW
