Edith Freer's book is a warm, well-documented history of Fordsville, Kentucky, a rural community in Ohio County. Her stories take you from Fordsville's earliest settlers in 1790 to 1992 (shortly before Mrs. Freer's death). Mrs. Freer's journey takes you through the glory days when the town prospered from oil and coal and how the Louisville & Nashville and the Illinois Central Railroad systems kept Fordsville from feeling the depth of the depression throughout the thirties. Learn about the three fires that nearly destroyed the town and the proud and determined citizens that continue to love and preserve their beautiful community.
