Old Photos Eddyville Kuttawa Kentucky

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.

  1. Hello Wade, I loved looking at these and so enjoyed the article. I have a photo that I’d like to share with you. It was taken at Kuttawa Springs.

  2. 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.

    • I was a child but I remember much of old Kuttawa, and of course the springs, where we had picnics and bought barbecue. The photos are almost too painful to look at sometimes. Thanks for your comment.

  3. I lived in Old Eddyville for 15yrs.1985 on. Alway wondered what the rest of the town was like. Thanks so much for sharing.

  4. 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?
