Old Photos Eddyville Kuttawa Kentucky. These are the last of the photos I have that were scanned. I do have some old photos I have yet to scan. I’ll get around to them sometime in 2014. Enjoy.  And Happy New Year!

To my fellow Lyon County natives: I hope you enjoy these old photos. Though they do tug at the heart. Please let me know if I have mislabeled any of them.

    Thank you, Wade Kingston, for publishing these pictures. I sometimes walk these streets in my dreams, and though I recognize many of the places, it is still confusing to look at. When I was a child, I thought everything was much larger than it was. I remember Hugh Wake and Co., where we bought my coats, and in the Spring, Mom and I selected new fabric for my school dresses. Kuttawa Springs looks much the same. I remember good times there, with preaching in the pavilion, the little booths selling popcorn and ice cream and then we had “dinner on the ground.” Good memories. I graduated from Lyon Co. High School in 1950. All of my teachers are gone now, but we did have some good teachers there. I could go on and on, but will just say, Thank you again. Please publish any more you may have.

    We lived in Old Kuttawa but i was very young. I believe that Trice Hughes had a place that was near where the swimming area is now? My Dad worked for Trice there and in Princeton. I do remember Kuttawa springs and i seem to remember finding arrowheads near where we lived?

    Thanks for the photos. My ancestors bought a store in Eddyville and moved it to Princeton on Hwy. 70. I was trying to find a picture but it was not here. It was down ay the bottom of the hill( I was told).Do you have any more pictures that you could share?

    As a new comer to Old Eddyville, I’ve lived here just shy of 19 years, I love looking at these old pictures. I just barely remember Old Eddyville before it was flooded. I remember my mother bringing us kids here JUST before they started releasing the flood waters. It’s almost impossible to comprehend the changes. My heart does break for all the people that lost everything for these dams.

    Wade, My parents ran the bbq restaurant and the hotel sometime in the 1950s. My two older brothers also lived in the hotel with my parents at the time do you have any information on that.
