Bassett Building in Hopkinsville, KY

Historic downtown Hopkinsville, Kentucky



Bassett Building in Hopkinsville, KY

This fine old building sits at the corner of 7th and Main in historic downtown Hopkinsville. It is called the Bassett Building in honor of the businessman who had it built in 1885 and put his name at the pinnacle of the roof. Robert Fears, a local attorney and hometown boy, has his offices in the Bassett Building, and he's done quite a bit of restoration. I'm sure the amount of money he has poured into the old building over the years that he has occupied it would be shocking to me.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
