Seen on Main Street

Life in Christian County, Kentucky... History and Old Stuff...



Victorian buildingSomeone has done a nice paint job on this vintage building on Main Street in Hopkinsville. I don't know what sort of business is going into it but I'm pleased to see its facade looking so dashing.

I've photographed this building's neighbors previously -- on one side, a nicely preserved building and on the other side, a sadly deteriorated building.

I sometimes call this part of Main Street "the legal district" because it's near the courthouse and sherriff's department, and many of the buildings are occupied by lawyers.

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)
