Description

The Madison’s Heritage articles from 1976 feature a series on Tates Creek Baptist Association and a series on the First Christian Church. Dr. Engle features a series on quotes from Collins’ History of Kentucky. Several articles add to the educational heritage of the county, recalling the Madison Female Institute and the Madison Male Academy. “Miss Clay Subject of Book” gives the first of many book reviews featured in Madison’s Heritage. It also brings additional light to the impact women had on the county’s history and Madison county women’s role in the women’s rights movement. “Dr. Sory Reaching 98” gives the account of the eye doctor who treated patients all over the state and set up a trachoma hospital in Richmond. Several articles in this collection feature Berea events and personalities and the changing downtown Richmond landscape.
