Old Home Town - 100 years ago

February 10, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 10, 1909: “Now that the huge YMCA convention is over, it has been determined that the local YMCA wound up with a deficit of $125. There were 619 delegates entertained. … More than 40 farmers and taxpayers gathered at Hesper last night to protest plans to build rock roads in the area. They say dirt roads are fine and they do not want to be faced with the costs for rock and the grading it would create.”
