Snapshots in Time

Snapshots in Time, a column exploring Hopkinsville and Christian County through historic photographs, is published on the third Monday of each month. It is written by Alissa Keller, the executive director of the Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County and inspired by the photograph collection of Christian County Historian William T. Turner.

In the second installment of Hoptown Chronicle's new "Snapshots in Time" column, Alissa Keller brings the moment to life.
