Hopkins County
Postcard History Series: Hopkins County portrays the fantastic history of its cities, including Dawson Springs, as unveiled through postcards of the lavish hotels and businesses that once brought thousands of people from across the nation to sample the healing water from wells in the city in the early 1900s. Showcased are glimpses of the coal-mining industry, downtown memories, institutions, and leisure activities in Earlington, Madisonville, Nebo, Hanson, Mortons Gap, and St. Charles. This book also includes information about two different businesses that were contracted by the government of the United States of America: one received an order for two million units of cigars, and the other visited the White House annually with a truckload of trees from Hopkins County.
