IOOF Building and Cumberland Telephone & Telegraph
|Corner of East Ninth and Virginia in Hopkinsville, KY|
The large brick structure on the corner is the old IOOF building. It's one of my favorites around historic downtown Hopkinsville for several reasons.
- It has been restored and repurposed.
- It has a sturdy, solid, "pillar-of-the-community" look that befits its history.
- I know three of the four young professionals who rent apartments on the second floor.
- I've had opportunity to visit one of the apartments several times, and in fact, that apartment was where we fixed Keely's hair on the morning of her wedding.
